Autumnal mug rug


Another addition to my mug rug collection. I used the shape of a FSL pumpkin I made several years ago (see picture 2) and made it into an appliqué design. To test it I decided to make a mug rug instead of just another test that would end up in a box with other try-outs.

Didn't know about using FSL designs in other ways - very pretty

I did not stitch the FSL design (I added a picture), but used the shape to digitise an appliqué, left out the mouth etc and make some minor changes. For the mug rug I added the quilting and the outlines for the borders and the lining.

Thank you. Never heart of a pumpkin spice drink, wonder what it would taste like. Tea and pumpkin pie would be great.

I had not digitised or sewed for quite some time, so you understand the need to do 'something' before carrying on with less creative things.
