When I spotted John's tutorial for an adorable mug rug over on Sew Mama Sew!, I was instantly inspired and decided to whip one up. Which I did. In one evening.
I opted to use all solid scraps on the front, and a floral thrift-store print on the back. This literally took me three hours to make (that included picking fabric, piecing, and hand-sewing the binding), which made it such a fun and satisfying project.
