Hello September! Can you believe we’re already here? Autumn is such a wonderful season! The beautifully coloured crisp leaves, stunning forsted cobwebs, chunky knitted winter woolies and the yummy hot chocolates!
I thought I’d share this tutorial with you! What a stylish way to keep your tea warmer for that little bit longer, you’ll always know which drink is yours and this would make a simple birthday or Christmas gift for family and friends!
Tip: Use a ¼” seam allowance.
Firstly measure your mug, around the girth from one side of the handle to the other, then the height. If you’re giving the mug hug as a gift, I’d suggest buying a mug too so you get the measurements spot on! Mine measures 8.5” x 3.5”
8.5” x 3.5” woodland fabric
8.5” x 3.5” plain lining
8.5” x 3.5” wadding
25” of ½” wide bias binding
1 hair bobble
Steps to create:
1. Cut out your woodland, lining and wadding pieces.
2. Place the woodland fabric over the wadding, and stitch along the lines of the pattern to quilt the pieces together. Sew the bobble to the centre of one of the short sides, facing inwards.
3. Place this section on top of the lining, with the wadding sandwiched in the centre. Fold over the end of the bias bin ding, then sew along the crease mark, raw edges together, all the way around the fabric. Overlap slightly when you come back to the start, and mitre the corners.
4. Fold the tape over to the lining side, and hand sew with a slip stitch.
5. Hand sew the button to the opposite side of the bobble.
6. Put the kettle on!
I hope you enjoy making this as much as I did! Please send in your photos! I’d love to see what you can create!
Lots of warm hugs,
