Mug bag take 2

Yesterday afternoon I had another go at mug bag creating...I made my own years ago and remember starting with a  cd to trace around to make the base, so thats what I did, it was interesting trying to measure around the cd with the tape measure, slippery little thing!!
Anyway after some sewing and unsewing I finished up with these
I am much happier with these, and the mug actually fits inside!! Yahoo!! 

The stitchery is finished and pinned to the backing, now to do the appliqué and hanging sleeve. I have enjoyed stitching this but am happy to have the finish..I have checked all the arms and legs and am confident no one is armless or legless!  Now I need to do somereally boring sewing...yep I have to hem some new jeans!! But first I think I will go for a walk, the sun is shining this morning and it isnt super windy.
Have a great day.

Your mug bags look great Sue .... your christmas stitchery ... is that a Natalie Bird pattern from The Birdhouse? It looks very familiar?

The mug bags are a great idea. Yay for finishing the stitchery! I am in love with your horse quilt in the blog banner.

Good to see that stitchery finished. You are like me having to check and recheck that all the stitching is done. New jeans? I wish I could find some that fit.

Oops! Forgot to mention your mug bags. Great idea tracing the CD. They look lovely. Well done for persevering.

Glad you nailed the mug bag, this version does look a bit more useable! Your finished stitchery looks great - I like the fabric you have chosen to put it on!

The mug bags are very cute... and the stitchery is gorgeous! As for hemming jeans... Ikkkk so boring! I always put off mending type jobs till I have no choice but to do it... though I think Stew is still waiting for some pants to be hemmed from, ummm... a couple of years ago! Whoops!
