I sewed a couple of items the other day. I had seen, around the net, something called a rug mug and some potholders shaped like cupcakes. I thought they were a cute idea and looked pretty easy to do.
For the rug mug, I was going to do a binding without doing the binding method.
I was too lazy to do an actual binding.
After I quilted all the pieces, I started cutting the batting away and cut right through the gingham piece that I was going to use for the binding.
Well, that was stupid!
Setting my laziness aside, I cut a piece for the binding-which I should have done in the first place.
Then I continued on by doing a blind stitch binding.
I love the cherry and red gingham patterns together.
Then, I got an idea to use the same material to make ‘cupcake’ potholders. I used my trusty psp7 to draw the cupcake and the frosting pattern.
I used Insul~Bright polyester insulated lining for both the cupcake and the frosting.
Just when I was stitching around the frosting-the last stitches-I got sloppy and didn’t want to make the second one. Or, could it be that I didn’t want to make another one and that’s when I got sloppy?
It is kind of like the chicken and the egg analogy.
That’s one more than I had before!
