Hippie mug rug

 Last morning when I have preparing a whole-wheat bread with different seeds I have seen the following picture in the pan.

It looked like a hippie sign.   
The hippie subculture was originally a youth movement that arose in the United States during the mid-1960s and spread to other countries around the world. The etymology of the term 'hippie' is from hipster, and was initially used to describe beatniks who had moved into San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district. The ultimate derivation of the terms hip and hep is uncertain, but both were clearly inherited from African American culture and denote "awareness"
Flower children were also associated with the flower power political movement, which originated in ideas written by Allen Ginsberg in 1965.

All this inspired me to make a Hippie mug rug.
If a man want to have a mug rug I think he hardly likes sweet embroidered mug rugs that is usually made.
I decided to make from recycled denim.
The back have to be very colorful and except the sign I put a heart and flowers.
All the appliqued shapes are rough edges. The mug rug is frayed, too.

And the back.

Get the pattern from HERE or the finished product from HERE.

 Make love not war!
