Next up ....

... is the Scrappy Mug rug swap!! I almost finished two mug rug tops over the weekend. My secret partner had suggested quite a few different things, but one of the colour combos she mentioned was red and aqua. Well, I just so happen to have a lot of red and aqua!

I started by pulling out some fabrics, and next thing you know I had this!

scrappy mug rug fabrics

I didn't really start with much of a plan, I just knew that those little owls needed to be a focal point.

Getting started ....

And before I knew it, I had two tops almost done!!


I thought the the bottom of the two looked a little plain, so I fussy cut a few more of those owls, and turned them into hexies!!


Now I just have to sew those little hexies down, and get started on the quilting!

Technically, I think you only need to make one mug rug .. but they are so fast and easy to make, that I can't see harm in sending two!!


  1. You've won me as I love owls! With 2 they can have tea/coffee with a friend :D.

  2. I love the little red owls and you even put them into hexies! Perfection!

  3. I wish I had plenty of red and aqua fabric too! ;0) They are going to be gorgeous mug rugs, I love the hexi owls, they really will finish them off. Don't forget to post again when they're done!

  4. That looks adorable! I adore that little owl and of course, those hexies too! BTW, I nominated you for a little award on my blog - hop on over and check it out :)

  5. Lovely. Where did you found this fabric, it's gorgeous?
