Presents for Teachers

December 20th 2013

“A quilt is a quilt no matter how small.”  Well, Horton didn’t say that exactly but I did! I made these tiny Mug Rugs for my daughter’s teachers.  My daughter has been talking about her teachers’ likes and class themes the whole year. So I whipped these up for them: size 6 x 8 inches.

owl patch mug rug

This one is just 2 1/2 inch patchwork, she likes owls.

This one was so easy because the fabric already looks “patchy” so I just cut front and back coordinating prints 6 1/2 by 8 1/2.

This one was the funnest of course. There is a variety of techniques here. The eye is applique and I satin stitched the gray twice it was not easy to get that stitch even so I am not pleased with that part!  But if you want to try it out for yourself, I made a pattern, available at my Craftsy shop.

Please remember to use this as a gift for yourself or for others and not for selling purposes. Thanks!
