Annigirl has received my mug rug on Thursday, so I am going to go ahead and post photos now
I left the edges unfinished, and put extra fabric layers between the top and bottom so that as it frays a little, you will see extra colors and patterns. I also mimicked the stitching that suereal did on my prayer flag recently and went all crazy on the stitching over the applique. For the front piece, I went with my partner's "hippie" theme... "peace, love, coffee/tea"
I went outside the traditional mediums for the back piece and decided to do a little needle-felting on the wool sweater that I cut to go in the middle of the mug rug. The back went with my partner's "nature" theme.
