Santa's elves were busy right up until Christmas Eve, making a mug rug for everyone who opens gifts here on Christmas morning. It was a fun project for me during the busyness of the holiday season, and it was fun watching everyone pull them out of their Christmas stockings.
I got the idea from a blogger friend Kelly, over at pinkadot quilts, who had a great tutorial on making cute but simple mug rugs - you can see it here.
|Genevieve's arty glamour shot, I love it! They have a lovely view of a forest preserve from their apartment. Her mug rug was vibrant reds, with some dogs (they have two pups) and some hearts.|
|This one belongs to Matt, Emily's boyfriend. I had previously made him some coasters of these earthy batik prints, and he loved them, so more batiks showed up on his mug rug.|
|Here is Nick's - Nick is Genevieve's boyfriend, and I chose red, white, and blue for him because (a) he was born on the 4th of July, and because (b) he loves Captain America! Love this photo too.|
|Danny, Hannah's boyfriend, love the Chicago White Sox, so I chose black prints (you always wear black to a Sox game!), and did some fancy stitching in red, to mimic that done on a baseball. This one was fun.|
