My mug bag

It's great to be back on the sewing machine again!

I needed to check some instructions I had written up, so the quickest, easiest and happiest way of making sure they are correct, is to make an article from the pattern! So here is a mug bag that I whipped up. I just love this co-ordinating fabric.

Now, why would I need a mug bag when I don't even drink tea or coffee????!!! Oh well, it will be something else to put on the craft stall at the Creative Craft Retreat in Queensland in a couple of weeks.

I'm delighted that so many of you have decided to join the "What is Love" free BOM. I hope you enjoy working on these little stitcheries. Look out for Block 5 later this week.

Happy stitching.


  1. I love this project and the fabric look so cute. Great job!

  2. Such a cute bag! Love the fabric combination :-)

  3. Hi Mum
    I love your mug bag, and yes, even though I don't need a mug bag ('cause I don't drink tea or coffee either) I think the bag should come and live at my place, as I'm sure it could hold some sewing bits and pieces or a small project in progress... not to mention the fact that it matches the wonderful stitching folder and tote you made me!

  4. I'm not sure if I already thanked you for this lovely BOM pattern! So, thank you very much, I love it and wish I had the time to start stitching NOW! ;-)

  5. your post very nice i love your fabric.
