I made this mug rug for a swap.  I keep seeing these button tree paintings and whatnot, so I thought I'd do my own spin on it. 



The tree is 100% hand sewn and made of felt (including the buttons).  I had so much fun making this and have decided to do a series of trees on mini art quilts.

I also am completely in love with batiks!
Here is the back of it.



Thanks for looking!

Thank you!  It was about 9" x 6" I would say. Maybe a tad bigger.  Smiley
