What are you most proud of? The versatility of this design. This mug rug can look modern as shown here or you can swap the baubles for hearts (from Country Tree pattern) and make it look country cosy. Both options are perfect for Christmas. I'm also proud that I have created my first collection of patterns - ten Christmas designs in one handy booklet. What advice would you give someone starting this project? I fussy cut the small tree baubles from Kate Spain's 'In from the Cold' range but you could add plain baubles and embroider them or use fancy gold or silver fabrics.
