    Final Product: What You Will Create

    Use print fabrics for the backs and bindings that define the Mother’s personality. Change the threads called for in the color charts to coordinate with those fabrics.

    Step 1:
    For each mug mat you will need the 9” x 7” front and back fabric as well as low loft batting. You will also need a 2 ¼” strip of matching fabric that is at least 36” long to bind the mug mat. Tautly hoop 2.5 ounce cut-away stabilizer in the hoop.

    Step 2:
    Run color stop (CS) 1 in white thread as a placement line for the fabrics.
