I know, those weren't words you were wanting to hear, but unfortunately it's on the way and there's not a whole lot we can do about it. So....Mrs. Santa's workshop has just finished creating two of these....
But....what are they you say?
Do you give up? Well, they're mug carriers! When we go to our quilt guild meetings we have to take along our own mug for our coffee or tea, so I thought having a carrier would help protect them, AND look rather cute too. One is for me (the one on the right) and the other is a gift for my friend who just joined the guild. Pattern was taken from HERE with a few modifications of my own. I felt that the bag wasn't quite deep (tall?) enough to properly enclose my mug so I added 2" to the pattern and instead of the fabric loop that goes over the button I chose to use a 4" piece of elastic. I also modified the amount of elastic suggested for the sides and instead of using 4" for each side I used 3"...makes it a little more secure I felt.
- THIS looks like a fun way to use up tiny scraps from your sewing room! Also, while you're there, be sure to click on her 'tutorials' tab at the top....some really cute things!
- Check out the crochet pattern found HERE - it has pretty much any size you could ever want.
Anonymous, again...."The older you get, the more you realize you have no desire for drama, conflict and any kind of intensity. You just want a cozy home, a nice book and a person who knows how you drink your coffee"
