Mug Rugs, and a Give-Away!!



Tweet, tweet! Hello, how lovely of you to visit me! See the big, yellow flower?  Isn’t it beautiful? Almost like the flowers outside, which are blooming and brightening up the world.

Remember the fabrics I showed in my last post? I said I wanted to make some mug rugs with them, so I did.


I used the flowers and bird from this pillow-tutorial.


And just what I was afraid of, happened; this is totally addictive. To make a little mug rug, which has all the elements of making a quilt, but then in a rather small size, is so much fun!! So while I was at it, I decided to make a couple more!


Again a little bird, but look what he sees!




And another one with flowers


And because I just felt like it I decided to give these two away!! No particular reason, not post number X, not a certain amount of followers, just because the sun is shining!


If you want a chance to win these two mug rugs, all you have to do is leave a comment on this post. Make sure that you are a follower, and that it is possible for me to contact you, either by email or your own blog.

The last day of this month I will draw a winner, so make sure you leave your comment before March 31!!


Groetjes, Dorien

Hi Dorien! Your mug rugs are so pretty. I especially like your little birds. They're cute!

I've heard of mug rugs before, but it never dawned on me before that this could be a way for me to learn about quilting. They look like a less intimidating project than a large quilt.

Thanks for the chance to win one of your beautiful creations!
