For several weeks now I have had one of my little ideas nagging at the back of my mind. I so enjoyed making the mug rugs for the swap I participated in and, I have seen so many cute Christmas mug rugs around on the internet that I really wanted to make some. However, with Christmas just around the corner, it has been very busy here and I just haven't had the chance!! Until this week!!
I wanted the mug rugs that I had in mind to feature trees.
Firstly, because I have seen lots of tree designs that I like but also because I wanted an excuse to use one of the cute little owl buttons that I recently bought.
I had a great time designing and planning how I wanted the mug rugs to look and then using up some scraps of fabric to make these fun little projects.
I also enjoyed embellishing them both with sequins and a small amount of hand stitching.
I am really pleased with them!!
