1 Doyley = 4 Mug Rugs

Ever since I wrote about Linda making mug rugs I have been wanting to have a go myself, crazy quilt style.

Recently we were in an op shop (thrift store) and I saw this sad looking doyley with some lovely hand applique work on it. It had a hand bound scalloped edge. I bought it for the princely sum of 50 cents.

I had it sitting around for a while but decided it was time to do something with it so one doyley was repurposed to become 4 mug rugs crazy quilt style.

While they are All lovely, I like the last one best! Great re-purpose of the doily!

Yes, we liked them all but liked the 3rd one best. I ran out of the soft lemon binding and in looking for something else came across the different fabric which we thought gave the rug a whole different look.
