As a gift a quick extra gift for my Mom, I decided to attempt some braided fabric mug rugs. I can assure you that for me, this wasn't quick. I think the braiding took the most time. I completed six mug rugs. Here is an example of what I made:
I chose a green and cream fabric. Here and there you can see the little hearts.
I used the Braided Rag Rug Coaster tutorial at Six Two Seven Handworks. It is a pretty good tutorial. I accomplished what I wanted. There is also a youtube video for the sewing portion. I did watch it a couple of times.
I guess I will return to the quilt making for a bit. I have enjoyed working on something besides a quilt for a couple of weeks. I do have a few other items that I would like to create but maybe I can work out a schedule where the quilt gets worked on and the other projects get worked on, too. I want to sew some clothes.
