I made these for a friend for her birthday as requested by her mom. They are basically mug rugs and perhaps slightly larger. The intention is that they are the right size to put a drink and a sandwich on. I machine embroidered her first initial on the blue one and hand embroidered the aqua/brown ones. I used the backing fabric as the binding which is one of my favorite finishing techniques since it's so quick and easy. I know that my edges aren't perfectly straight but I think it adds to the handmade charm of them.

without further ado here are the pics













Thanks for looking!   Comments and criticisms welcome!
