Copycat Mug Rug

I always loved Anita's, so made one for myself but used buttons for whimsy.

    so sweet!

    You are such an overachiever. I felt really proud that I got my fabrics pulled today, but geez, woman, you're putting us all to shame. However, I understand the whole machine-is-going-away-must-be-productive thing. I didn't say I get like that, but I DO understand it. lol

    I do love these flowers. You'll have to tell us how you get your buttons. I sometimes look at them at the local fabric store, but am usually too cheap to buy them individually.
  • Karin 3y

    It is so cute! A lovely copycat mug rug, I think I need to try one too.
  • Carol 3y

    Maria Johnson I get the teeny buttons at Joanns. They come in packages of several different colors with about 75 in each package for $2.29. (Needless to say, I think I have bought each different color package available. lol)
  • Synnoeve Kristiansen Dyresen 3y

    It's wonderful! Maybe i should give it a try aswell:-)

    Yours are always fabulous! I wonder if flickr has a way to favorite everything a person posts?... I'll have to check!

    Next time I'm there, I'm gonna get me some of the buttons. Maybe I can persuade my sister that we need to go together while I'm at her house this weekend.

    This is so very pretty. I love the colors you picked. That binding is perfect.

    I was inspired by your and Rhubarb Patche's mug rugs for the Great Big Stitched Postcard swap. Mine is on watercolor paper with bigs of fabric.
