A folded bow tie mug rug was featured a couple of months ago. I learned the technique at an event which my mother also attended, so it was almost inevitable that we both used some version of it during the year of the swap. (I told you it was addicting.)
Mom made a MUCH larger version and embellished it with a button–wouldn’t this be a great Father’s Day mug rug? I really like the quilting, both on the bow tie fabric and on the gray background.
