Ah!  I don't know that I took very many pictures along the way, oops!  I get so heads-down in my idea that I sort of forget about documenting the process.

For the box, I'd been hoarding a box I'd gotten with a set of happy socks (like this):

And it was perfect for what I had in mind, so I cut out the middle bit, taped the two ends together to get the correct size, and then painted and attached cardboard paper stock on the inside and outside, along with a few decorations I cut out using punches and my Sizzix machine.

It was received last Wednesday so I guess it is ok if I post pics.  Here is the needle punched mug rug I sent to kbrison.  She had pinned the exact dragon fabric I had in my stash.

The back of this (woven) one is a little... handmade?  I sort of like it, though? Cheesy I struggled with all the layers with the woven fabrics.  It's too bad, this was a lot of work folding, ironing, braiding!!

LOL I worked on it EVEN MORE this morning, if you can believe it, trying to "fix" where I smudged the fabric paint on his foot by filling in using fabric markers.  For the main body I was experimenting with various Tim Holtz alcohol inks (the blobs are droplets of those) and some color wash (which apparently washes out in water).  I used some puff paints to outline. I probably should have done some research first, but I was just throwing it together at the last minute and 'playing'.

I think it wound up OK, I wore it today to the game!

I was lucky enough to be the 2nd to receive a mug rug, yay!!

Just look at this gorgeous specimen:



I love all the gorgeous fabrics, so many beauties!  And the main color, purple, is my favorite color.

On the back the fabric has what almost looks to me like the Death Star (swoon!  since I'm a Star Wars geek).


Love the perfect work, it is so gorgeous.

I also really liked the little card she sent along with it (are they family? So sweet)


Erm...  There was also a lovely snack of Reese's white chocolate pumpkins... where could those have gone....  Grin

Thank you, Linda!
