Father Christmas Mug Rug for the holiday sewing contest.

Hi everyone, here is my Father Christmas Mug Rug that I have made for the pattern review holiday sewing contest, I do hope you like it!

I only decided to make this on Sunday but it is amazing how quickly  it  is put together, there are lots of photos to show to give you an idea of the various stages. I previously made this in traditional colours for my sister for Christmas but I needed more experience in attaching the binding, so I made another in these lovely blue shades as it will coordinate with my craft room. 
I am not an experienced quilter and I have only attached binding to one quilt and one mug rug previously but the appearance does improve each time I practice the skill.

The pattern is from Craftsy by SH Designs here , it was only $2.50.

Edited: My mug rug came third  place in the Pattern Review Contest....... Yay!


Happy New Year everyone, thankyou for visiting!
