Last year I made Christmas mug rugs for my friends and one young mum said that it would be good to lay out for Santa's milk and biscuits. Good idea! So this year I did a Google search for Santas Mug Rugs and found quite a few different designs. I made two - one for miss Cooper and one for Miss Ava. It was fun and didn't take too long to make :-)
Ribbons ready - I was going to use ribbons as the trees, but changed my mind - I will use them somewhere.
I decided to use some cut Christmas strings from the Christmas stockings I made the girls.
I then cut the triangle sections for the trees.
See I did find somewhere to use the ribbon.
I made a calico pocket and used the ribbon for the top decoration.
I wrote the words first then stitched over them.
Next - the quilting. I used gold thread, which is at times difficult to use as it breaks frequently, but all went well.
Add a Santa letter and drink of choice.
