Mug rug and card

At last I have something to blog.
Today I'd like to show you a mug rug and digi card I have made for a forum friend who has a birthday coming very soon.( I'm hoping she'll not look here before then ) I saw the mug rug on Pink Penguins blog and just had to make it. Originally the pattern was for a key fob and was resized with a binding added. I sewed strips of different sizes together, then cut two half leaf shapes from a paper template and cut these out of my two sewn fabric pieces. Then I sewed these two pieces together to form a 'leaf' I then quilted in the ditch between some of the strips. I used thermal wadding which is heat resistant, making it perfect for a hot cuppa.
The card is my first digi card. No it's not! It's my second. I scrapped the first as it was rubbish!
Thanks for visiting my blog

Hi Joy, love your Mug Rug, and of course your card, but the Rug is unusual (to me).
