For this project, I used red, green, and tan burlap.
These are the Christmas fabrics I used. The blue fabric in the middle is my favorite.
I cut out some trees to use as templates for my fabric trees.
For the background, I cut a tan burlap rectangle sized 8½ x 6½ inches. I freehand drew and cut a hill. I pinned the hill and trees to the tan burlap.
I used the zigzag stitch for the hill, and a regular straight stitch for the trees.
I cut the batting to the size of the front of the mug rug.
I chose my favorite Christmas fabric to use for the back and border of the mug rug. I cut a piece measuring 11 x 9 inches. I folded the fabric over the front of the mug rug to create a neat border. I did mitered corners. Sometimes, I prefer to use clips over pins.
Ta-da! All sewn up!
I made one mug rug with a green hill and the other with a red hill.
I used my favorite Christmas fabric for the back of the mug rugs.
