take a sip of inspirationThis saucy snowman mug rug demonstrates how just a few simple shapes in just the right fabrics can create an iconic image without a lot of fuss. I especially liked how the maker (who lives in Texas, and probably doesn’t get to build many snowmen) used a shiny black fabric for the eyes. That shine (plus the cute stitched smile) adds a little dimension and life to Frosty’s face.

This mug rug was made by Laurell Griffith.

The use of the pop of white in the binding frames the image nicely. It reminds me of the faux flange I used for my Ransom Note mug rug–I included instructions for the binding in that tutorial which you could use for any rectangular mug rug.
