Jodi over at Pleasant Home is doing a great Scrap Along. The other day she posted a tutorial for a MUG RUG. Well after seeing a few of them I decided to make one this morning. Its a great way to use up scraps. I started saving the little bits of strings (anything under 1-1/2") leftover from cutting fabric, blocks, etc. I had them in this basket and new that one day they would find a home somewhere and I think I found it. I didn't worry about straightening the edges. I just picked out the purple ones and sewed them together. Crooked, straight didn't matter. Within a few minutes my Tree Mug Rug was born. It looks great under my coffee cup. Thanks Jodi for the Tutorial. I will definitely be making a few more.
Tomorrow I am off to Houston to festival. I know I am going to have lots of fun and hope to not hurt my pocketbook too much.
