Vintage Ornament Mug Rug Tutorial

Mug Rug Supplies

Prepare Applique

  1. Trace the ornament patterns onto the paper side of the HeatnBond lite.
  2. Cut out each ornament, leaving a slight margin of HeatnBond around each one.
  3. Fuse the HeatnBond to the wrong side of the fabric.
  4. Cut out ornament along the traced line.
  5. Remove the paper backing.

Make mug rug front:

  1. Place your background fabric right side up on your pressing surface.
  2. Position the ornaments using the placement guide on the pattern. Be sure to leave at least 1/2″ margin around the fabric to allow for squaring up and seam allowances.
  3. Fuse the ornaments into place following package instructions.

Add foil accents

*This can be done before or after sewing down the applique.

  1. Trace the accent pattern pieces onto the paper side of the Deco Foil adhesive sheet.
  2. Cut out the accent pieces.
  3. Position the adhesive pieces on the ornaments.
  4. Fuse into place. *note- be sure to use the parchment paper included with the adhesive to protect your iron. Follow all package instructions.
  5. Remove the paper covering.

  1. Cut pieces of foil large enough to generously cover the adhesive.
  2. Place your parchment paper on top and fuse using your iron- follow the package instructions carefully.
  3. Allow to cool and remove foil.

Quilt mug rug

  1. Use SpraynBond to baste the backing fabric, StitchnSew fleece, and mug rug front together.

  1. Sew around each applique piece to secure- use a straight stitch or a zig-zag stitch. I like to use my walking foot or embroidery foot to do this.
  2. Add additional quilting to your mug rug as desired.
  3. Trim the mug rug and square it up to 9″ X 6″.
  4. Add binding using your favorite method.

That’s it! You now have a stunning, sparkly mug rug to use or gift!

Happy Sewing! Amy
