Aunt Pitty Pat is hosting a Mug Rug Swap over on her blog. When Aunt Pitty Pat holds swaps there are always a few people who are from Facebook or who don't have a blog. I think my partner is one of those people.
We were to make a mug rug 6" X 10" or somewhere around there. I chose to use one of my English Paper pieced hexagons on the red background. It looks like Christmas but can be left out longer if my partner likes. We also needed to include a favorite recipe (chocolate chip cookies), a candy cane (cherry) to stir with, coffee/tea/cocoa, and a mug. My mug has cocoa in it plus I included 3 packs of coffee. I also included a gingerbread house clay ornament I bought.
I used this fun Santa fabric for the back. I love the peppermint binding fabric.
These mug rugs are fun to make. I actually have 3 or 4 more waiting to be finished.
