I was so supprised that I won #2 place in Madame Samm mug rug contest... I was sure none of my mug rugs will win anything, as there were so many wonderfull works gathered in the flickr group.
Now I can show you two other mug rugs which I made for the contest:
'Warm up your life'
You can put you mug on the sun... and your tea or coffe will warm your morning and the whole day :)
Before making this one, I was googling for some idea/picture of tea party or some funny quote about tea. Suddenly I saw 'three o'clock' written in some sentence and 'tea o'clock' jumped in my head itself. As 5 o'clock is the tea time, I placed little tea cup on 5 dial :)
[and my favourite fabric last days... I heart those brambles]
And typically for my creations, both mug rugs were made using raw edge applique technique ;)
