What was my first project?
Jen over at Patterns by Jen is hosting Muggamo! What is a maggamo you ask? She explains her word creation brilliantly on her blog post, but basically it is a "Mug Rug a Month". She will be sharing a new mug rug pattern each month. Hop over to her blog for all the details!
This year, one of my goals is to make some smaller items. Things to use for gifts or to place around my house. These mug rugs will be perfect!
The pattern was easy to follow and I picked the fabrics right out of my scrap bin. With all this yucky weather, I felt the need to pull some bright Springtime colors.
See my new snippers? Love them!
Pretty trimmings! But I really, really need to clean that mat.
Part of me wishes I would have swapped out the yellow and the white, but the other part says, "Well make another one silly!"
See that fancy, new scissor thread cutter on my new machine! Favorite thing so far, tied with the 1/4" stitch setting.
Trying out my new walking foot. Pretend you don't see that tiny little pucker, that was totally user error.
Just look at those pretty, straight lines! Loving it!
I had to try out the free-motion too.
I still have to hand-stitch the back of the binding, but that will get done tonight.
Overall? Very happy with this little mug rug! Thanks Patterns by Jen for the great tutorial!
