These little winter birds will tweet their way right into your heart, if you let them. This mug rug is a perfect way for using up some of those small pieces of winter fabrics that you have been wondering what to do with! The center is reverse appliqued — it’s easy, we show you how. The design comes with detailed instructions and photos. The background around the birdies is stipple quilted. Absolutely no machine or hand sewing required.

There are 2 stitch files in your download: The birdies version as well as a plain one that will allow you to insert a design of your own choosing. Both versions have a stipple quilted background. In addition, you are receiving a printable mug rug tag as part of your download (in pdf format). The tag explains what a mug rug is and how to take care of it.
