This sweet quick hitter of a project is the perfect pick me up for beating the cold winter blues away. The applique details allow you to use up your smaller fabric leftovers.
Mug rugs are the perfect small project for testing out new skills. Such as:
- Choosing the right fabric and fusible to prep the applique pieces.
- Hand-stitching simple embroidery and adding embellishments.
- Layering and binding your quilt sandwich.
Annie’s Creative Studio video classes walk you through each step.
