This set of 4 mug rugs for the 5×7 hoops is completed as an in the hoop project. There is no further machine or handstitching required to complete the mug rugs. The contrasting “borders” are applied during the embroidery process. The snowmen are part applique. A special effort was made to include texture in the designs (such as ribbing on cuffs, knit texture and pompom).
The set also comes with a printable, coordinating tag (in pdf format). The tag explains what a mug rug is and how to wash it. No font included.

A small piece of fabric for the applique snowman
Steam a Seam 2 or similar bonding product
