I had a post for this morning. But something happened and now it’s gone. I suppose that’s part of the whole blogging experience. Instead of recreating it, I decided to run errands and stop at the fabric store and Michael’s. Just to see what might be there in the way of inspiration. And what do you know…I found stuff.
Stuff that I obviously had to work with right away. The mug was in Michael’s Christmas crafts for kids, age 3+. Just right for letting your crazy child out to play, don’t you think? And the price was a no-brainer, only $1. A half hour of time and a few scraps later, I have an adorable coaster and a cute mug.
The mug does not require any sewing. (I hemmed the bottom of the insert and sewed the side seam but that’s because I’m a crazy person.) I also used interfacing to provide stiffness. On the next one, I’m using Heat ‘n’ Bond and applying the fabric directly to paper and not worrying about seams. Even easier.
Right after I get done reading and having my cup of coffee, I’ll worry about recreating that post. Or not. Hope you all had a good day.
