I made this lovely little red riding hood mug rug for the mug rug swap. My partner Craftydiem loves red riding hood so I came up with the idea to create this little beauty. I choose to do her hair auburn color to look a little like Craftydiem's daughter. The backing fabric (not shown sorry) is just a simple red and white flowers with a few blue flowers mixed in.

I loved this little rug and it was so hard to send it off. But I know its found a good home with Craftydiem

Details of red:

Details of the wolf:

Things I learned from this one: when hand stitching applique: use only 1 thread. don't double up (or at least with embroidery thread)
When using heat n bond lite for 4 layers of fabric, the bond will fail and will give you a headache when you try to sew through it. (keep pliers near by!)
Binding isn't as hard as I thought it would be. (I usually don't do this type of binding on quilts)
 I used this tutorial to help me: http://contented.typepad.co.uk/contented/2010/10/mug-rug-tutorial-part-two-binding.html
(however I machine sewed mine instead of hand sewed)

I didn't notice all the textures before in the gallery- love the ribbon trunks and frayed edges. Really cute!

I have a deathly affinity for the cute!
