The material I used I recently bought at Sew Much More here in Austin and have been waiting to find the perfect project for them and this is it.
When I started making it I thought I would do a quick tutorial and share it with everyone.So, here we go!
|- Next I added a plain white cotton strip around each side - my strips were 1" wide. I sewed a scant 1/4" seam on these strips.|
|Trim the extra ends on all four strips|
|Press seams open on the back and press the front as well|
|Don't pay any attention to the fact I didn't start sewing the front & back together at the correct place - I did give correct instructions above!|
|Here is my layout of the back side using some fussy cut flowers from the floral fabric on the front. I moved them around until I was satisfied with the design.and you can see I started sewing down the fussy cut flowers.|
|I chose to make the back more of a shabby chic look. (Don't pay any attention to the line of holes..... that was another design I decided I rather not use. This is my mug rug so I won't bother complaining!)|
|This is what the front looks like after sewing the flowers down on the back. Pretty darned cool if I say so myself!|
P.S. This tutorial is for personal use only, thanks for understanding!
