My !First! Mug Rugs!

You are familar with the St Pat's table runner... I needed something to go with it, so I made two mug rugs. 



 I needed more practice with applique, so I found some patterns (coloring book online) of  shamrocks and made some.  They are not the four-leaf clover kind, but shamrocks.

For the binding of the mug rugs I used one of the pieces of binding I won a couple of weeks ago or so.  It was a little narrow, so I sewed it between the top and bottom and then turned the mug rug right side out.  I still need a bit more practice; the corners are a bit wonky, but then so am I.

Love your mug rugs. I'm addicted to making them. These small projects are a great way to try a new technique without spending a lot of time. Your mug rugs are so cute and I think your applique is great.
