Mug bag

This afternoon I have been working on a mug bag for a good friend. I found a pattern on the internet and thought I would give it a try. It was a bit fiddly but went well until I did the binding and that was super fiddly!! Trying to join the binding on one side was like trying to sew in a teeny tiny corner...not easy. It looks a bit ugly in places but hopefully with use it will settle in.
Well last night blogger would not upload a photo for me, so I have tried again today. I have finished the binding but now I find the average mug we have does not fit in the bag, so I am off back to the drawing board. maybe it could just be a bag not for mugs!!
Happy sewing.

It looks great, even if the mug doesn't fit!

Cute! perhaps I could make a hug one then when I feel like a mug myself I can climb in!

That was meant to read HUGE....not hug! Time for me to climb in that mug holder :-/

Gotta laugh!!!! ( Even Mark laughed when I read it out to him. I think it looks good though.

Looks lovely and will have lots of uses.... perhaps a cup :)

I think this bag was originally designed as a fund raiser for breast cancer... I made one years ago too. I like your 2nd choice bag you made too.
