    First try at Mug Rugs

    The casino one is my first one and I have to admit it isn't very good, the purchased binding dosen't look that great but it was really just a practice thing to see if I even liked doing the mug rugs.
    The South West one's turned out some better, I sewed around the pots and cactus and then used some material for the binding which I liked better. I need a lot more pratice, all in all they were fun to do.

    The size of them are 6 1/2 x 8 1/2

    Thanks for looking.

    Cute..I like working with home made binding. I don't know why, but I feel like I have better control of it.

    I like the southwest ones really well! I find it hard to put binding on little tiny projects. You did great.

    Agree. Plus the manufactured bindings seem to be of poor quality fabric.
