Craftsy offered a free mug rug pattern a while back on their blog. I printed it out and set it aside, knowing it would be a perfect small project to do when I didn’t have a lot of time to sew. The day came! So I got out my box of solid scraps.
This is what the paper piecing pattern looks like.
The mug rug on the blog was done in a rainbow and I planned to do the same. I wasn’t sure I had enough scraps in the right shades to do this, you need 15. I was surprised to find that I had to edit out about 5 or 6 pieces to get down to 15!
It was a quick sew, all done by machine except for the last bit of binding.
I think it looks great sitting in this bush in my yard!
Have a great day!
