What are you most proud of? Although this pattern is shown here in a Christmas style this pattern would work all year round - the robin could be changed for a bluebird or a retro-bird (turquoise or pink maybe). I also love that the envelope uses two fabrics so it is a great chance to play around with colour and pattern. What advice would you give someone starting this project? Send one of these mug rugs in place of a Christmas card - include a note or photo in the mock envelope pocket. A handmade gift is always a delight to make and a pleasure to receive. And whilst you are at it - make a couple for the Church bazaar or fete.
