This very quick Mug Rug does double duty. It is lovely as a special mat for your beverage and snack….and if you wrap it around a cupand tie with a pretty bow and it becomes a cute little gift toting present!Millie gave me a gift similar to this a few months ago and I thought I would share the idea with you!
It was so simple to make. I started by drawing an 8″ x 8″ heart onto a piece of fusible batting. Then cut out the heart and fuse it to the wrong side of a piece of pink fabric.Cut out around the batting. This will be the backing.
For the front, piece to fabrics, 4 1/2″ x 8″ togetherand repeat with batting and cut the front heart out. To finish I layer the two hearts together, RST and sew around the edge, leaving an opening for turning, then top stitch about 1/8″ all the way around to close the opening and give a nice edge.
Have fun with this cute little double duty mug rug! And Happy Valentine’s Day!!
