Or Make it Up in Frosty Colors for Use All Winter!
Decorate your sewing space during the holidays with this cute little mug rug. It’ll be fun sitting near your machine while you work, helping to keep your mind on Christmas projects.
It makes a darling gift for quilting and sewing friends, too. Plus it’s a great use for scraps of holiday fabrics. We love the button-headed pins forming hair for the snowman pin cushion.
Also consider using more generic fabrics and enjoying it all winter long. Just omit the holly leaves and you’ll have a wonderful spot to park beverages near your machine during frosty weather.
The mug rug is simple to make and goes together quickly. A bit of piecing, fusible applique and a touch of hand embroidery make it fun for quilters who enjoy variety.
Dimensions are not provided by the designer, Quilt Doodle Designs, although it appears to be standard mug rug size. Or, enlarge the shapes on a copier and adjust the background for a mini wall quilt to enjoy every year.
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!
