{Cup O’ Joe MUG RUGS}

The other day I shared a project using a new-to-me photo transfer process

and today I’m sharing a project using the same process only on fabric


I created this graphic/image with the circle, arrows and wording and transferred them to fabric
(you can view the transfer how-to here and here)

I trimmed the fabric and pieced it with other cute fabric to make the top of my mug rug

then I chose my chevron backing fabric, attached some fusible fleece and sewed it to the top

yay!!  I also tried my hand at machine quilting with this little project and I’ve fallen in love!!

A place for everything and everything in its place

  7. Your mug rugs are just what I need! Coasters are too darn small for coffee cups, and these would work perfectly. Nicely done!!
