I’ve been wanting to make a Christmas mug rug but the Cotton and Steel Tinsel 2″ strips I had weren’t big enough to fit my fussy cut heart mug rug pattern. In an aha moment I realized I could just sew the strips together to make it the size I needed. Here I blended in a teal dot fabric and 2 different neutral prints. I used the green ornament print to increase the size of the center piece too. This is such a great way to use up small scraps and add more variety of prints to your mug rug. I love how this turned out! You can see the other mug rugs I made using this pattern here and here.
I used my scraps for the back too. The sewing on the binding is still a bit wonky but practice makes perfect right?
How do you you use up your small scraps? Thanks for stopping by today and happy “mad” scrappy quilting!
