This design is for a mug rug for Thanksgiving, but can be used on any project you desire. Copper metallic thread was used for the fruits and leaves. The first color stop in this design is a basting stitch to hold down the fabric that is floated on top of the stabilizer. There is no need to hoop the fabric, just the stabilizer. The mug rug instructions and Stitch Sequence are included with the design download. These instructions apply to all of the mug rug designs. The finished mug rug is about 6.5 inches by 9.0 inches.
