I promised my DH a Mug Rug for work a while ago and finally got around to making it for our anniversary this week.  He looked up the traditional gifts for the eighth anniversary (pottery & brass) and I claim the rug is "pottery adjacent.

He's also a Captain America fan, so the rug is in the shape of the classic 1940s shield from the movie.  I was originally going to go with the more familiar one, but the classic spoke to me.

I appliqued the shield onto the blur fabric and then traced the shield to quilt it to the back.  I don't have a picture of the back, I just used a kind of country stars print that he actually picked out one trip to Joann's when I asked him what fabric he liked best for a background.

It's Really BIG.  He uses one of those 32oz mugs at work, so it had to fit that.  The mug in the picture is extra large and there's still a lot of room.

Thanks! 
It looks better to me every time I see the pictures.  He's taken it away to work, so it's not hanging around the house.

I'm impressed that you even changed colors between red & white when attaching the shield to the background.  Nice work!

Thanks!

LOL - about the changing colors: I knew I wanted to do that but should have probably started with the white rather than the red: it would have made better lines.
