My First Mug Rug Finished TaDa~
His eyes didn't show I used flat gems and the sparkle.I did follow the pattern the best I could,
The pattern wasn't for beginners that's for sure, I used fleece for his nose which I like the 2-D effect.I am sorry I wasn't able to do the binding, Just didn't know how,
I sewed the 3 layers and then turned them right side out.Hand whipped the opening, Then did a quarter inch stitch all the way around the M.R.
But found a wonderful YouTube tutorial TheCraftyGemini
I will try on my next Mug Rug...YES can not wait to get started on my second one
Also Tuesday was my Quilt ordination.
We stood for 2 1/2 hours We had a large class, They broke us up in groups,
Going from one learning station and on to the next.
I finally sat on the floor, The ole back was saying " ouch! "
But had a BLAST! Talk about learning..WOW it was all hands on and visual.
Saturday we start on our actual little quilts. We will meet each Saturday for 6 weeks.
Can you tell I'm excited!
