Princess and Octopus Mug Rugs

 I did the Craftster Mug Rug swap a little while ago and I realized that I never posted these little guys! A mug rug is a wee quilted thingie, kind of like a place mat. It's usually about 5x7" in size, big enough for a mug o' something and a little treat like a cookie or muffin. This first one was for a princess theme (if you couldn't tell by looking at it :)
 Here's a close up of the quilting on it. The fun thing about little quilts is that they're small enough to get some pretty cool stitching designs on there with just a regular ol' sewing machine.
 I used StazOn ink to stamp the letters and the images were printed onto sew-on printable fabric. I thought the raw edges of the letter pieces looked pretty neat.
 This next one is ocean themed and has a nice little octopus applique.
 Close-up of the stitching. The batting I used on this one was a bit thinner, so it's not as puffy as the princess one.
I used a zig-zag stitch to fix on some suede yarn for the border. Anyhoo, I gotta go get ready for my Disney trip :D So excited!!!! Happy Wednesday, everyone! Have a beautiful week!
