See, it started out as an idea for a pillow - a birthday present for my friend, TabbieG - that would match the quilt I made for her birthday a year ago. But I didn't have enough scraps to make a full size duplicate block. So, I halved all the measurements and created this little mini block. Added a bit of white to extend the rug and added this cute stackable flower button. I even embroidered using the pattern right on the white fabric. The only problem beyond this was I couldn't find a cute purple mug to complement it.
So, since I knew TabbieG wouldn't mind and we all need a sweet treat sometimes, I grabbed a glass and my mug rug quickly became a Margarita Mat !!
In fact, we spent last friday night watching chik fliks and indulging in a couple of lip smacking margaritas!
Here's a few more shots...pics, I mean ; )
What, 3 o'clock? No worries...it's 5 o'clock somewhere!
LOL! Perfection! Gotta love it - is it really 5 o'clock somewhere? Where? 'Cause I sure need to be there right about now! Great job, she is gonna love it!
But it sure does make me miss girls nights, chick flicks, margarita's and spending time with my friends :( sniff, sniff...
Wonderful mug rug! The little flower in the corner is adorable!!
Now, I'm not so much into the mug rugs, but put a margarita glass on it and I'm sold! Super cute!!
A beautiful mug rug Wendy! Cheers! ;)
Can't believe this is your first one, it's beautiful, but then I do love purples.
That us a darling mug rug. Love the little flower! Thanks for linking to fabric tuesday!
Hi Wendy, Love your mug rug. They are a fun project to make and we can use scrap fabrics taboot!
I am very pleased with my mug rug. It is the cutest idea. Don't know how you guys come up with them. Of course I love the colors. My fav part is the flower. Thanks so much for my b-day present. Last night was fun with dinner and a movie. The movie was great. You are a great friend and will always be.
The lavenders and purples are very pretty. Great job!
