Yoyo Mama's Mug Rug Fun



This was such a fun exchange ....
oh my gosh we have a lot of talented YoYo Ladies...
Every one of these mug rugs were darling!
If you need to click on the picture so you can see it bigger!


So Sweet!


I don't know how this ended up upside down...so cute!


This is the one I was lucky enough to get but since I am 
the camera girl I had Betty hold it since she made it.
I am so lucky!


Doesn't she look happy she got that one..


Black and white with a black mug I do think Betty loved it!


Just as cute as the package it was in.



All laid out to see.



Pat is the most organized of our bunch and because of her 
everything went smooth.



So darling 


This one is worth enlarging the picture...





Yes we had a pot luck and it turned out to be a lot of yummy
treats



Look at all that work...


How fun and it would be great for every day 



So cute too!
These all turned out so darling but I don't think I could really use them
I think framing .....
little works of art!

Mug Rug


I love Mug Rugs!
There is something about them that makes a
cup of tea that much more special.


The Yoyo Mama's are doing a Mug Rug
for the christmas exchange this week.
I have made several and didn't like any of them.
But I finally like one.
So I really hope who ever gets mine
likes it too.


I couldn't get this picture to turn...
oh well you get it...
I always quilt up a yard of a fabric I really like
then I can use it for mug rugs, hot pads and
oven mitts. Makes it easy for a fast gift if I
have some on hand.


When I make these I use the same stuff for the inside
that I use to make hotpads. I can't remember what it is called.
I have been racking my brain to tell you ....
but ...I cant remember.
I buy it at JoAnn's and I am sure if you ask them
for the batting for hotpads they will take you right to it.



Since we are "YoYo Mamas" I had to work in a Yoyo.
This was so fun but I can't believe how much time I spent
trying to decide what kind to make...
I looked at a million (I am sure thats an accurate count)
mugs and cups and I thought I would make one that matches...
Then I thought a strip mug and a polka dot mug rug...
or a floral mug and a strip mug rug....
or a plain mug and a bright mug rug...
see the possibilities.....
then I saw the glass mug....
Goes with everything....YEAH!
then what fabric....oh my Gosh!!!
I will try to get pictures to show you
of the other ones the girls made.

Mug Rugs


We are having a Mug Rug Exchange
for Christmas at "YoYo Mamas" this
week....
Now I can't show you the one I made for
club ... until after club starts...so I have the post ready
and it will post while I am at the meeting on Wednesday.
I will try to get pictures of the other girls Mug Rugs.
I had so much fun trying to decide what one to
make.
Should I piece it, quilt it, stitch it or applique it...
so many choices and what fabric to use....
such a dilemma...
I even thought I should make the one I have the pattern for on etsy:
but I didn't ...and you will have to back on Wednesday to see
what I came up with.
I did use the same fabric for the back ground....since I quilt a yard
so I have some on hand.
I had so much fun ...so come back Wednesday...

that got finished but before I quilted it I got the bug 
to start another top....
