TGIFF Christmas Finishes!

We’re close to “C” day!  Yay!  It’s no secret that I love the Christmas season.  If I could, I’d leave my holiday decorations up all year.  Cleaning around three trees may be a challenge, but I’d enjoy every minute!

This year, I set out to make at least one runner for myself, and four mug rugs for gifts.  Last night, I finished my runner, and one of the mug rugs.  I’m really happy with the results!

Here is the runner, made with a 60 degree equilateral triangle and Christmas border fabric from the Holiday Magic fabric line by Lisa Audit.  This is only one way to arrange the triangles.  The options are endless!

 

  
The mug rug I finished last night, was made with Moda’s Joyeux Noel by French General.  I saw a mug rug on Etsy, and did my best to recreate it.  I loooove it!  I bought Insul-bright batting from Twisted Cedar Studios, and found it fabulous to work with.

I made another variation of this mug rug, and unfortunately, threw it in the wash with an article of clothing that bled onto the fabric, making it dingy.  I’m researching  color correcting methods in an effort to save this adorable project.  Here it is before the disastrous washing!

 Thanks for stopping by and checking us out!  Katie and I wish you the most wonderful, creative holiday season ever!

  1. My daughter once had a red fabric that bled onto the white but somehow bled evenly turning the entire white fabric pink. Still pretty but she wanted white. She experimented with a color catcher sheet in the wash cycle and that worked.

  2. I washed a white sweater with black pants and ended up with bluish patches on the sweater. Rewashed in cold water with Oxyclean stain remover and it came out as white as new.
