Beautiful Friday morning here. I hope you are enjoying the last two months of the year wherever you are.
I want to share my tea mat idea today. I have made over hundreds of tea mats or mug rugs so far but still love making this little project.
First draw a simple cupcake shape on the paper and trace it on the fabric you like. Cut out each fabric pieces by hand.
finished size is 8inch x 5 1/2inch.
cotton: 3inch x 5 1/2 inch (+seam) , linen: 5inch x 5 1/2inch(+seam) , back fabric 8inch x 5 1/2inch (+seam), quilt batting 8inch x 5 1/2inch(+seam)
trace 3 1/2inch circle on the linen with erasable pen. Put quilt batting under.
Hand stitch the circle.
To decorate with cotton ribbon, I used fusible web and iron the ribon on the linen and hand stitch after to secure. Iron the Cupcake as well.
Button hole stitch the cupcake.
Put the right side together, machine sew or hand sew leaving a hole to reverse.
Reverse right side out and close the hole by hand.
I hope you can make your own tea mat today. Thanks as always.
