Polaroid Mug Rug
My brilliant friend Kristy of Quiet Play has another great pattern coming out for those of you who enjoy paper piecing. After seeing this Polaroid camera on her blog, I was absolutely charmed, and I was even more thrilled when she let me test it out for her. Discovering that I was out of black fabric didn't stop me -- I pulled out my fat eighth bundle of Architextures (which didn't include the black prints), and decided to go the navy blue route. It's a little busy, but I like it. I threw in a few blocks from the Polaroid block swap I did through Debbie's blog earlier this year, putting it all together to make a good sized mug rug.
The back uses one of the great ledger prints from Architextures. That green strip at the bottom almost makes me think of a composition book.
Add a mug of tea and a few oatmeal cookies, and I'm ready to go...

You did not really just put cookies on top of that. Right?ReplyDelete

That is so cute! I just used some of my fat eighth bundle of Architextures - I'm posting it tomorrow. Oh, and I have that mug - well, with a B.ReplyDelete
That has to be the cutest mug rug I have ever seen! I don't know how you can bear to put food on it:)ReplyDelete

Seriously adorable. Ahhhh! I think I need something cute to drink my coffee with in the morning...ReplyDelete
great mug rug! love Architextures too!!ReplyDelete
Fabulous! I like the navy instead of black. It gives a kind of natural dullness/shine that those cameras always had. Super with the polaroid blocks!ReplyDelete
Absolutely awesome! Great, great piecing and combo of fabrics! And Kristy's pattern is adorable!ReplyDelete
