Breast Cancer Awareness Mug Rug

A friend of mine recently celebrated 5 years of being cancer free! Even though I don't see her often, she is always in my thoughts. I created this mug rug with her in mind. So many of us have been touched by the "C" word. I wanted to create something whimsical and uplifting to show my moral support to all those women and their families who so bravely battle breast cancer everyday.

The pink ribbon is an optimistic symbol that honors those who have been touch by breast cancer. Creating this mini quilt for someone in your life is a lovely way to show your support for them and will act as a little reminder that you are thinking of them always.

This pattern includes step by step instructions, list of materials needed, full size placement guide and templates with easy to follow cutting and sewing instructions on how to create applique, mitered corners and binding too. If you're not comfortable with creating mitered corners and binding yet, also included is an easy No binding method, Perfect for Beginners.

Once you've made your mug rug, use your creativity to make lots of different projects with the templates included in the pattern. Apply applique technique to ready made towels, totes, t-shirts, jeans, backpacks, and so much more. Templates may be resized to fit any project. The options are limitless.
