Earlier this week, Amanda posted on her blog about making herself a new Ticker Tape mug rug and, flushed with the success of making my last two mug rugs, I felt inspired to find the pattern and have a go at making some.
This pattern is so quick and easy to put together, that I had time to make two! One in greens/reds and one in blues/browns.
They were great fun to make and are a fabulous addition to the Christmas decorations!!
I used up some of my scraps to make them, just fussy-cutting some of the rectangles to add an extra Christmassy feel with the snowmen. The cut shapes are fused to the background and I finished them off with a machine blanket stitch.
Just perfect for those mugs of hot chocolate or coffee and mince pies!!
I hope your Christmas preparations are going well. As I will now be busy with friends and family until into the New Year, I would like to thank you for visiting my very humble blog and, wish you all a very, very Happy Christmas and health and happiness for 2015!! Looking forward to seeing you all again then!
