First time I made a larger ITH size 6x8 mug rug. I have made the envelope style back many times, but I messed up on this one. The envelope fabric is to be put on the front for turning, I put it on the back, continued to embroidery until done. Not sure what I will do with it, maybe satin stitch around the perimeter. Any suggestions for the perimeter? I like the retro fabric and will make more hopefully with no goof ups! Hugs and flowers to all, Suzanna

Thank you! I am keeping it next to my computer. Fits my mug just right too. I did pull some strings to rag it.

Love your retro fabric also, as well as your front design I agree with
Pennifold's suggestions. For me it would be easier/quicker to remove back, place on front and restitch.

Thank you! I think I am going to let it rag out. Lesson learned, to pay attention to what I am doing!

I don't see a thing wrong with it, I love it and the RW design continuous line pattern.

Hi Suzanna, I would undo the stitching and redo it. Other than that, use a bias binding. It still looks good anyway. Love Chris

Pinking scissors, or binding.
I know. Done stuff like that. If it was the very last step maybe you could rip the seam and then place it in the correct place and sew with sewing machine. Love all the material you had chosen and the theme. Good luck

I think it is just great the way it is!!! Great fabric!! Hugs!

Thank you! It does look white in the picture but the fabric as a light beige background and the quilted fabric matches. I hope you are not snowed in. We are expecting lots of snow until Saturday.

We have a bunch of snow!!! But, thank goodness, the roads aren't too bad! Stay warm! Hugs!

It looks great as is, but I know that won't last long with washing. If you don't like the shabby look, a red satin stitch would look nice or a red binding to match the red stitching.

Thank you! I may leave as is, let it fray.

Love your fabric choice and the line work design. Perfect for the kitchen. I also like some of the retro fabric available now. If you have enough of the retro fabric leftover, or a solid coordinating fabric, you could add a thin binding around the edge to finish it off.

Thank you! I bought 5 yards from a friend. Still not sure what I will do to finish the edge.

It still looks like a lovely mug rug to me. I love the retro fabric.
