Making My First Mug Rug

 Starting my very first mug rug, Here I have done the step 1,
Picked out my fabric and colors , cut the mat 7 x 10 also backing 7 x 10 and the  batting. Warm and Gentle,  and using wonder under have it ready to apply the applique

 Step  2 I have peeled the backing off the WU and ironed the applique into place and have pinned the batting to the back ground fabric, Ready to Hand Quilt .
I am making a set of Mug Rugs for my daughter Valerie, If they turn out that is :)
I am not pleased with the pattern directions, I quess they thought the person should just
know what their doing..
 directions state and I quote:
cut  1  ,  2 " strip the WOF "

 well I got out my accuquilt go and cut a 2 inch strip.
I do not know what WOF means?  But will try to find out
 Then it says to
" Bind mug rug using  2 " strip . Got that.. Fold in half lengthwise iron. use miter edges.

well if I fold the strip in half your going to have a raw edge on one side...That won't look good...

Hi, Sherrie: Love the mug rug. WOF means width of fabric. Hope all is well. Linda
