Week 11 of 12 Weeks of Christmas – Penny Mug Rug

I love the new Primitive Pennies fabric collection. It looks so warm and cozy. I love to snuggle in and drink warm drinks when it is cold outside and I love penny rugs. My project for 12 Weeks of Christmas is a Penny Mug Rug!

I think this would be a great gift to make for friends. It is really quick and easy. I did the blanket stitch by hand but if you use the blanket stitch on your sewing machine they would be even quicker to make. It’s getting close to Christmas so consider this for one of those last minute gifts you may need to make. I picked out my favorite prints from the Primitive Pennies collection to make this but I can imagine it in a lot of other fun fabric combinations.

If you decide to participate in our Christmas fun, we would LOVE to see how your projects turn out. If you’re on Pinterest, upload your picture and tag it with #12WOC. Any images with that tag on them will be seen by our team and re-pinned to our board! Of course, we would also love to see your pictures on our Facebook wall!

    I love this pattern, and would love to get the pattern to make for myself as well as friends. How do I get this pattern.

    It’s really cute, you did such a good job quilting it and of course your applique stitches look like they are done by machine because you are so precise!
