What a fun mug rug to let somebody know you love them – not only on Valentine’s Day but all year round. This project is completely stitched in the hoop; no additional hand or sewing machine stitching required. The background is quilted with a heart motif and the side borders are attached during the embroidery process. The hat and heart are appliqued.

There are 2 stitch files in your download. One with the center design as shown; another one without the design and only the quilted background, but no other design in the center.
