Second mug rug from the swap

I promised to post here some details about second mug rug when my partner received them.
Today is the day. I am so happy. My Italian partner, too.
This is the content of the envelope.

I have made a greetings card with a piece of the band and stitched heart by machine.
Making cards is my another passion.
When sew a quilt I always make a card with leftovers, write the care instructions inside and give it to the future owner.

For the second mug rug I decided to use the same fabrics for front and back. Anyway they are parts of the same swap.
The difference is the way they are look.
Because the white fabric is a little bit transparent I have put a blue felt under it.
Look how it has changed.

The leaves are from felt in in colors to match the five-ringed symbol of the Olympic Games.
 The back is with label written by hand with permanent marker.


  1. Lucky partner - two stunning mug rugs with personal touches. Love them both.

    1. Thank you, Amanda! Your patterns are great base for improvisations. It was my first international swap, but not the last.
