These Mug Rugs Make Darling Decorations Too |
Design Your Own “Sweaters” from Scraps!
Ugly Christmas sweaters were the inspiration for these darling mug rugs. The result is fun and whimsical little sweater shaped quilts perfect for the season.
Make a few to use and others to give. Package one up with a festive mug and chocolate (or a baked treat) for a wonderful gift.
However, these little quilts can be used for much more than that. Hang them on mini hangers for your tree or hang several on a cord for a garland or mantel decoration. They’re so cute that you’re sure to think of several ways to display them.
Five designs are included with the pattern: a tree, Santa, snowman, reindeer and ornament. Part of the fun of making these will be going through your stash to find fabrics and buttons to create your own colorful version of one or more of the designs.
Plus, fusible applique makes them very quick to complete. You can have several made in an afternoon.
For hanging, you’ll find a selection of mini clothespins to choose from here and 4″ wire hangers here.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
