Wow. How could this be my first time making mug rugs!?!?! Oh, this may be a serious addiction. The immediate satisfaction is so rewarding. I also love that you can use a little bit of your favorite fabrics, making me super happy while not depleting my already mini-stash.
So, I made two mug rugs this weekend for my two Goodie Swap partners. I truly, truly hope they are happy with these.
Partner 1 is (thank goodness) open, chatty and gives great hints in flickr and on her blog of what she likes. I hope she likes what I created for her!
Partner 2 is a (again, thankfully) a regular blogger and also chatty on flickr. However, I can't find the pattern in her "favorites". Some times her "likes" are super modern, bright and geometric while other times they are a little more vintage and pastel. Does this mean I am missing something or that she loves it all? I do not know, but that's part of the game, right? I took the modern route and hope she likes this. If not, I have another mug rug in mind that I am also completely happy to make. Anyway, let's give this a go for now...
Off to make goodies. I have a few ideas for my two goodies. Oddly, Partner 2 is easily sorted and will be finished tonight. I'm sure she'll like it. Partner 1 is more difficult here, but I have an idea to start with. Watch this space :)
