Monthly Mini Make - How to make a Shamrock Mug rug

I love making mug rugs!  They are the perfect little projects for me to get my EPP (English Paper Piecing) fix without having to embark on a long project.

This little mug rug can be started and finished in just a couple of hours.

You will need:

  • (6) 3/4" Jewel Paper Templates ( SKU JWL075)
  • (6) GREEN fabric scraps measuring 2" x 2.5"
  • (1) 8" square of foam stabiliser (such as Bosal In-R-Form)
  • (1) 8" square of LIGHT background fabric
  • (1) 11" square of GREEN backing/ binding fabric

You can watch this short video showing me making one of these mug rugs on my live Twitch stream.  The stream was 2 hours long and I had a lot of distractions during the making process, but I hope you can see just how achievable this is in a short period of time.

You can download the FREE template files and basic instructions here

Let me know if you make one in the comments below!  Don't forget to share your progress on social media using the hashtag #shamrockmugrug and #hexadoodlequiltpattern

Happy Stitching!
