Today, I spent a large majority of my day working in my craft room. It looks like a tornado hit it, but I was successful in completing not one, not two, but three projects! I had to make some more mug rugs to sell in my Etsy store. I am even more low on items than last week. So I finished these three very different mug rugs. The first one is an American flag inspired mug rug. I just love this zigzag fabric and I thought that it evoked the feeling of the stripes in an interesting way. The back is the star fabric from the front.
Then I made this pretty one with a gorgeous floral and natural linen. I also added antique lace that I got at the antique market last weekend and a beaded embellishment which used to reside on a t-shirt I bought a while back from JCrew. The beading was too heavy for the lightweight fabric of the shirt so, I took them off. I thought it would add the perfect, girly touch for this mug rug, and I was right. It is so cute!
Finally, I just finished this one. It is made with a panel from some bird fabric that my mom sent me a few months ago. I just love the colors. I used a cool batik on the right with some antique lace separating the two sides. Then I sewed some buttons in the bottom, right corner for some added embellishment. I love the way this one turned out too.
Some of these will be available on my Etsy site soon. So, if you are interested, keep your eye out for them. I’ll also be working on more tomorrow. I have a lot of great fabrics picked out to work with tomorrow. Until then. Have a restful evening, and Happy Monday.

Wow Erica, these are beautiful. I love all of them but especially the bird one. So interesting how you can take the same fabric and make it into something so totally different. I am glad that you are having fun with these, and getting back into the crafting mode. Great job!! Have a good week crafting.
