Mug Bag by Red Brolly ............

After making a few patterns of mug bags, I have come up with the pattern I enjoy making.. If you go over to Red Brolly you will find the free pattern .. It is also a great site... I know I will be going back very soon  :))

I bought the material as a fat 1/4.

Didn't think I could do this, but what a surprise. The pattern is set out so well, so easy to follow.

The pattern has a pocket for Tea or coffee sachets plus sugar..
The back drop is the pin wheel quilt top I have been making..
 On the crochet scene is one jacket from UFO bag.. so when I have managed to crochet a few more rows I will post
                                                  a pic or two..

Happy Crafting :))

What to make with left overs...

I was rumaging through my crochet squares the other day and came across the lovely rose pattern  that I had left over from a cushion and rug I made during a crochet along over at Apple Blossoms last March..

So what do you do with squares that keep piling up............... Well may be this....

Take 10, 4" squares.. join 8 together, crochet a pretty edge around, add 3 buttons and there you have it....

The beginnings of a coffee mug carrier and mug warmer. 

This is so easy to make ..

Mug warmer for your favorite Mug..

Sits nicely inside protected ..

Side view..

Closed like a paper bag and easy to carry or placed in your bag..

or ready for that cuppa, Which is what I could do with right now :))

Thanks for stopping by ....

Hugs Pat ..

Remember this one?? I have added a couple of crochet flowers, bought from a local shop .. Managed to quilt around the words etc..

I joined a Friday Night Sew In..
Started on this small quilt..
Managed to make a few pin wheels...
To go around this..
I love Moda and this is made ..using Moda 5"squares.

I wonder how long it will take me...  Well thats it for me..
