This mug rug is even quicker & easier than the first one I did the tutorial on.
Cut a 6 1/2” x 9 1/2” piece of medium weight iron-on pellon. Cut strips of your chosen fabrics 6 1/2” x anything from 1 1/2” to 2 1/2” wide.
Lay the pellon glue side DOWN.
Lay your first strip on the pellon.
Lay your 2nd strip of fabric on the 1st, right sides together. Stitch.
Flip the 2nd strip over & continue adding strips in the same way until the pellon is covered.
Trim the rug back to 6” x 9”.
Cut an 11” x 8” piece of fabric for your backing.
Centre the rug on the backing & pin in place.
Turn the rug over & iron to glue the pellon to the backing, remove the pins.
Turn back over & bind as shown on the original tutorial.
(I’ve reposted it below).
Cut a 5/8” square our of each corner to cut back on the bulk.
Turn the corner over 45 degrees.
The pin is so I could take the photo as I didn’t have a third hand. :-)
Fold the hem in half.
Two more I need to choose backing/binding for.
You’d never think I had a sewing room, lol. I’ve taken over the dining room table to make a few things for the verandah area we’re working on. I’m just cutting squares for a tablecloth for the cane coffee table.
