Mug Rug Thursday

Wow, it's almost a year now, since I started my Mug Rug Thursday give-a-way! Time has really flown by.
Today's mug rug, "This Old Shoe" is my favorite rug now. I can imagine my great-grandma wearing a pair of these.

I used my Pfaff to embroider these eyelets (#150, single design on the machine). I love the crackled fabric used for the shoe. I really had to dig deep to find that particular one.

I used a lighter background with the dark brown shape to make the shoe stand out.

All the fabrics are from my stash which has grown somehow......sigh!!

Design on the reverse side. I used a Sharpie to make the lines I wanted to use more visible.

The original clipart design.
You will need to leave a comment to be placed in the "hat."
 I'll announce a winner
 November 29st.
Yes the 29th, the day after Thanksgiving.
We'll all be filled with turkey/dressing and other trimmings, so a day late is much needed.
The winner of
 "Autumn Leaf"

Congratulations to you!
Just leave a comment so that we can communicate via email.

Love the old-fashioned shoe. Glad we don't need button hooks anymore in order to be shod. Enjoyed seeing how you go from an idea to the finished project.

Love this antique shoe mug rug! You certainly put a lot of work into this! I would love to be able to look at it everyday!

Bonnie said...

You are such an artist. Haven't seen any of your projects that I haven't loved. This shoe is so detailed. Thanks so much for these giveaways.

I have been enjoying all your mug rug designs. You are so creative!! Love the grandma shoe - it is darling. I wonder why people back then had so much smaller feet? Have you noticed that? In museums the shoes are always so very tiny!!

Rose Marie Andreozzi said...

Wow, look at that shoe. If I win, that shoe will get hung up in my hallway. Hubby has been complaining that there is an empty spot ever since he 'borrowed' a tiny quilt to hang over a hole in the wall in the kitchen! sewingblogsarefun@yahoo.com

Don't count the days, make the days count!
