Mug Rugs

13 Jul

Have you jumped onto the Mug Rug train?  They are a fun, fast stitch and make perfect gifts.  And…oh by the way they are a great canvas for words of inspiration and look darling as a votive candle mat. Cut some wool out today and create!

    I am new to Sizzix and wool applique. What size circle die and scalloped circle die did you use for the mats? Also, what size circles did you use for the snowmen? Is this also the appropriate size for pennies? Your work is beautiful. Thanks so much!

      Vicki, thank you for commenting on my Mug Rug post! The Circle Scallop measures 7 1/4″ and is an Accuquilt Die that fits I the Sizzix Bigshot Pro BSP or Accuquilt Studio cutters only. The background Circle measures 8″ and again fits in the BSP. The Snowman circles measure 1 1/4″ and are a good Penny size. You will want to purchase all the circle dies Sizzx makes fro 3/4″ to 4″ as Penny Rugs often stack circles of different sizes. I encourage you to find my Pinterest Board Pretty Penny Precuts to see all the projects I have made using Sizzix dies.

        Thank you so much! I actually bought the Pro so I could use Accuquilt dies. I bought it for the 1/4″ strip die so I could cut strips for rug hooking. But, I now have fallen in love with wool appliqué. My mother and I took our first class last week. Now, I am anxious to start using the Pro for appliqué’. I’m headed to look for your pinterest board now! Thanks, Again!
