    Does anyone know how to delete the first correction I
    put up there so no one gets confused between the two?
    Maybe a moderator could do it.
    Thanks,
    Marcia

    Marcia,
    You did GREAT putting the correction into the Word document, especially adding the option of using washable fabric glue to close and trim the V. Thanks a bunch!
    I was wondering the same thing as well: I'm thinking about contacting a moderator to ask if they could allow me to edit the original topic submission to include this new step. Does anyone know if that is possible? Once it gets past that 15 minutes or whatever it is for editing, are you stuck?

    You are so welcome, Lara. I'm glad it was in the right
    place this time. Now if the first one can just be deleted,
    I think we're good to go.
    Have a Blessed Day!

    Hi, just wanted you to know how I did the copy for the leaf. I placed a piece printer paper onto my pc. screen and traced over it with a pencil.
    Worked great and that way didn't have to print out the whole tute. Got the real size on it too that way.
    Love your mug rug leaf.

    I'm a little mug rug
    sitting all alone
    put your mug on me
    and give me a home. :)

    1. Print out the Maple Leaf Pattern on regular printer paper. Size it to one page, with borders of 1.0 The Pattern should be about 6 inches.

    By Jigs that's a clever idea! :D The cost of pencil lead is a heck of a lot less than printer ink! We get so caught up in technology that we forget the simple solutions sometimes.

    I'm a little puzzled about why the whole tutorial would have to be printed out though. For anyone who actually does want to print out the pattern anymore after reading Jigs' money saving solution, if you click the download button right under the leaf pattern, then you get just the pattern on one whole page.

    That is a really sweet Mug Rug Poem. ;) If you haven't already, you should add it to one of the two Mug Rug Poem /gift tag topic pages!
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-72577-1.htm
    http://www.quiltingboard.com/t-114384-1.htm

    I think it would be really neat to include the poems with mug rug gifts. And it's fun to make up your own too.

    Thank you for sharing. You just gave me an idea. Our son is getting married October 1 and we are giving the rehearsal dinner on September 30. I am thinking about making these for the attendees (21). I hope that I am not biting off more than I can chew (ha). I guess I wlll have to give up golf this week.

    Hi, I copied from my pc screen because when I hit ("ctrl, then P") the whole tute came up on my screen. So that's when I drew it from the screen.
    I wasn't trying to take anything from your information you gave, but found this worked for me so that's another way to copy a pattern as needed.
    By the way your tute is wonderful and very clear. Thanks :)

So I told myself “Lara, Step Away From the Computer”, went for a walk outside in the sunshine, got a real maple leaf and made up my own pattern. I found some fabrics that would hide stains and wash up well and then made up a few maple leaf mug rugs for our family room. My DH even said he loves them!

    So I am now posting this for anyone else who would also like to make them. Seems like an Autumn-y thing to do. If any of you do make one, I would LOVE to see your pictures and see how they come out in different fabrics.

    Please bear with me while I post the directions and pictures, as I’m going to post them one step at a time to keep them in the right order.
    Just saw someone that made these on the board tonight and added a stem, they are so nice. Just wanted to share with you I thought of making a bigger one and zooming the pattern up bigger and storing the four in it on my antiques trunk when not using them. Just leave the bottom open and turn under and put the four in it, what u think.......Just love your idea.....nice for gifts at work. I like to do the seasons with a surprise for all at work and this is perfect, thanks for sharing.

    I enlarged mine and used the walking foot. I did it in a fall fabric. I thought about making 21 but changed my mind. They do take time which I don't have much now. Thank you for the tutorial.

    I love this & what a great way to use some scrap fabric & batting. I think I'm going to make some just to lay around on my tables as autumn decoration. Thank you!
