Although it has been a hot summer, I am hanging in there. This past
week has been interesting, to say the least. It was our 20th wedding
anniversary and we spent it in the hospital; my husband fractured his
ankle so it was swollen pretty badly. I am sure that he will make it
up to me later on.
This is a wall hanging I have had on my design wall for well
over a year. I thought that it was time to complete it.
Only 7 more houses to add; I must note that I found this
picture on Pinterest. Because I am making it for myself and not
selling it for profit, I thought it was ok to make.
I do respect copyright laws and peoples’ creative property.
I must admit that this is my first mug rug that I have ever made.
They remind me of fabric postcards, proably due to their small size.
The back of my mug rug. I finished the edge with a tight zigzag stitch.
Inspiration came from Pinterest. It has such great ideas that one can
tweak yourself. I used interfacing for the tea bag and I used black
fusible interfacing for the tea leaves inside the tea bag.
Another fabric postcard that I made. The circles are supposed
to be hay bales in a field. I painted the grey fabric that makes
up the buildings. A sharpie marker was used to add the
windows in the buildings.
Using a stamp on the back of the postcard really helps to
finish it off and look more professional.
It was alot of fun making and quite quick too. I may
have another idea for a fabric postcard.
What have you been creating this week?
Have a great week.
