Making some mug rugs is one of the projects I’ve wanted to try for a little while.  So Friday while it was storming here (it was sooo gloomy!) I decided to make one.

I think it turned out really cute.  What do you think?

The fabric was part of a “fill your bag for $3” sale my sister and I ran into while visiting her local quilt shop earlier in the spring.  You know, it’s amazing how much fabric you can stuff in a lunch-sized paper bag! 🙂  Because there are no selvages I have no idea what, who, where, when this fabric is.  If you know, maybe you could share info with us?

Anyway, the fabric is cute and while the tape measure fabric is not totally appropriate for the kitchen, I thought it would be great to keep in the sewing room for when I have a glass of iced tea or such.

It was easy to sew up and I quilted it with my walking foot using straight lines almost 1/2″ apart with a light yellow thread.  I’ll definitely be making more of these in matching sets to use as gifts.

I hope you get to sew something fun this weekend!
