I made this tea mug rug for my daughter for her birthday. It's from San Francisco Stitch Co. The Mint was changed from Chai, since my daughter loves Mint tea. I hope she will enjoy using it at her desk in her dorm room while she's doing classwork.

Gosh, that's a terrific mug rug! How did you get the satin stitching so perfect? I always get pokies.

The satin edge was part of the design. I used tear-away stabilizer. The fuzzies, I lightly touched with a lighter, then used a sharpy marker that was close to the same color to color the edge. I guess you could uses a wash-away stabilizer also and then there should be no pokies if you trimmed it close before the satin stitch.
