It was while I was sipping on a freshly brewed cup of French Earl grey and avidly pouring over the selections for the Melbourne Cup- that I thought, to myself- Wouldn't it be lovely to have somewhere to put my cup whilst thinking about the horses?
So- I rushed madly off- quickly drew something to go on the front- and Hey Presto Change-o, here it is . Specially for Melbourne Cup Day.
The Chic Melbourne Cup Mug Rug!
Notice the Red Brolly girls are discussing their tips for the Melbourne Cup, whilst drinking their French Earl Grey tea laced with Champagne!
It's meant to go with the Chic Butterfly Mug Bag.
(Pattern in free Downloads).
With a small adaptation it ties neatly to the inside of the bag- so you can carry the both of them with you.
Pretty neat, eh?
All you do to keep the Mug Rug in place is sew 22" of co-ordinating ribbon to the inside of the bag…..
Roll the Mug Rug neatly- and tie in place!
Of course- you can just make the Mug Rug by itself.
