corner leaves so that it all fits neatly onto a 6½”
only thing left was to decide which sidebar I would use from my One Block Mug
I went for the ‘quirky’
option of turning the Stars and Stripes Sidebar into a Snowman’s Flag by fussy
cutting some of Lori Holt’s cutesy Cozy Christmas fabric. (This sidebar is also available individually for $1.99 in the Stars and Stripes Tea-Time pattern.)
