Penguin Mug Mat - my version of Sue's cute creation. My SIL's neice is a huge fan of the Penguins professional Hockey team, so I thought I should make her a mug rug to use while she watches them in their run for the Stanley Cup this year. I added the tummy text and the ribbon loop. Hope you like it, and thanks to Sue for her generousity!!

Thanks Sue - I used all scrap pieces for this (polar fleece for the backing, white flannel for his tummy, and a faux suede for the black front piece). I also adhered a layer of cutaway stablizer on top of the black tear-away piece I had hooped, so it would be a little more sturdy. He is so cute and feels fuzzy on top with the flannel. Thanks so much for sharing your design with us!!!

She promised to use this little mug mat for the rest of the play-off season, since she will watch the games from home now. Hope he brings them luck!!

Thanks so much. I used a very dark grey for the eyes, instead of black to give him a little more dimesion. I like them, too!

Thanks, but I can't take credit for all the stitching. Sue D. did a wonderful job digitizing this little guy. I just filled his tummy...

Thanks Carolyn. Maybe it will bring them some good luck - I heard they will face-off against Ottawa in round 2, starting this week.
