Two mug rugs are included in the design set. Both are created entirely in the hoop. What looks like bias binding around the edges is actually four strips pieced in the hoop after embroidery.
There are hearts quilted on the front and the back uses an ingenious method of turn and fuse that requires no hand stitching.
I did not add the applique to my sample because my background fabric was pretty busy and the applique hearts would not stand out.
But stitched on a plain background, the applique hearts are so cute, I may have to make one of them too!
The files include a tag you can print that tells the recipient how to care for their mug rug. Add a mug filled with chocolates to the set, and you have a thoughtful valentine that can be enjoyed all year!
