Valentine Mug Rug

This very quick Mug Rug does double duty. It is lovely as a special mat for your beverage and snack….IMG_2015[1]and if you wrap it around a cupIMG_2014[1]and tie with a pretty bow and it becomes a cute little gift toting present!IMG_2013[1]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. IMG_1989[1]Then cut out the heart and fuse it to the wrong side of a piece of pink fabric.IMG_1990[1]Cut out around the batting. This will be the backing.

 

For the front, piece to fabrics, 4 1/2″ x 8″ togetherIMG_1988[1]and 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!!
