In the Hoop Mug Rug/Coaster for 5x7 hoop -- Elegant 5
For each mug rug you'll need:
1 - 6 inch square edging fabric
1 - 6 inch square batting
1 - 6 inch square top fabric
2 - 3 1/2 inch x 6 inch pieces backing fabric
You can use one color throughout, if desired. Colors provide stops for each step of the process.
Color One: Placement line. Hoop stabilizer and sew color one. This gives you the placement line for your fabrics.
Color Two: Place edging fabric, batting, and top fabric over placement line. Sew color two to tack fabric down.
Color Three: Sew narrow zigzag to provide further stabilization for the layers of fabric and batting. After sewing, trim batting and top fabric as close as possible to the outside of narrow zigzag line. It's okay if you cut a few stitches in the process -- the fabrics are well stabilized and will have further stitching on top later. Be sure not to trim edging fabric. I usually trim one layer at a time to assure that I'm trimming as closely as possible and to prevent me from accidently cutting the edging fabric.
Color Four: Quilt design
Color Five: Satin stitch to cover raw edges of fabrics. Watch this as it sews. Because it's sewing a circle, the fabric will pucker a little as you sew around. That actually makes it easier to turn later. Just be sure that you don't accidently sew a tuck of the puckered fabric as you sew the satin stitches.
Color Six: Fold/press a 1/2" hem to the wrong side of the the first piece of the backing fabric so you have a finished edge. Place over hoop, right side down with folded edge centered in hoop. If you're going to use steam a seam or similar product to finish the seam, put in place now but do not press. Place second piece over the hoop, right side down, overlapping the first piece by about 1/2". Sew in place with color five. Remove from hoop and trim leaving a 1/8" to 1/4" seam allowance. Turn through opening in back. Smooth edges using a turning device or rounded object like the handle of a spoon. Press and close back with slip stitch or press the steam a seam or similar product.
