Mason Jar Mug Rug

Way back in September of last year, (in some ways it seems like just yesterday and in some ways forever ago) I joined in a mug rug swap for the first time ever to benefit the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund over at my friend Beth's. She runs it every year. (September is Ovarian Cancer Awareness Month.) Cherrywood Hand Dyed Fabrics was a sponsor for the swap in 2014 and donated different colors of teal swatches, and each participant received a swatch that had to be included in the mug rug.



It was such a busy month dealing with the cancer situation in our own family, that although I eventually blogged about the one I received, I realized that I never blogged about the mug rug that I made for it. I had been toying with the idea for a while of a decorated jar, and the 6" x 9" size of the mug rug seemed to fit perfect. So I worked on it, and here's how it turned out.




I kind of wish I'd used more contrasting fabrics for the jar and lid.  I used a selvage for the lid.  And then decided it needed some embellishing. So out came the felt buttons, and the moda tape (does anyone else save that from your precuts?)  




Small things are fun to practice 
FMQ-ing on, too. :) Easy to maneuver around and if you have to pick any of it out, it's a small area.



It was a fun, quick project that was scrap friendly. :)  If you'd like to make a Mason Jar Mug Rug, I've written up how I did it and you can view it here:
