I have previously posted about one such mug rug that I made. I have been thinking of making another (for what I am not sure - since it won't be matching and I am generally the only one who drinks coffee at my house I really only need the 1) for awhile now. I have been running ideas through my head and finally thought I would try a ziggy zag little pattern (but I wasn't going to use a pattern - just "figure it out" for myself). Ooops.
Did NOT turn out as it was pictured in my head.
I didn't use the correct dimensions.
I turned it into this:
Which was more of an abstract hint of color sort of piecey thing. Then, I decided that I didn't like it. It was too busy and yet nothing particularly stood out - death by too similar of color values ONCE AGAIN!
I kept this one as is (didn't feel like taking all those stitches out). But thought I would try something a bit different on the back.
This one I like! A bit of color and piecing that stands out from the otherwise plain background. Added the little circle becuase, well, becuase I love circles!!!!
Hope you make yourself a mug rug or two (if not this week then another instead).
