I haven't ever participated in a swap of any kind before, but I noticed that one of my favorite fabric shops, Fort Worth Fabric Studio, was hosting a mug rug swap on their blog, so on a whim, I signed up for it!
It was a lot of fun waiting for a surprise to come in the mail box! This is what I received from my partner in Saskatchewan:
a nice and happy mug rug just right for Spring! Thank you very much for brightening my day!
This is what I sent to my partner:
Lorna, at Sew Fresh Quilts, is hosting a super-cute Elephant Parade, so I followed her tutorial for the large elephant. It was a little big for a mug rug...but that means more room for cookies, right?
I had a lot of fun making it and I hope my partner likes it!
