The Perfect Summer Sewing Project

English Rose Mug Rug Pattern

I love summer - spending time outside at the shoreline or on the South Downs.  I also love sewing but, as the temperature rises, I do not want to spend too long inside over a warm sewing machine and a hot iron.  That is why mug rug making is the perfect summer sewing project.

Mug rugs are quick to make - some as quick as an hour or two (you can always hand finish the binding sat on a picnic rug).

Mug rugs use whatever fabrics you have to hand meaning less time spent shopping for supplies and more pennies for an ice-cream cone or afternoon tea.

And, with just a little time and very little cost, you can create a unique, handmade gift for family, friends or even yourself.  Leaving you plenty of time to enjoy the outdoors.

What a perfect reminder of those lazy, summer sewing days.
