Mugs - Thrift Share Monday

Enesco Patchwork heart mug with handmade matching coaster

I had to have a go at recreating the patchwork image from this 1980's Enesco mug I'd found at thrift last week.

Villeroy & Boch Medici Mug, Enesco Patchwork Heart mug, Peter Rabbit 2 handled childs cup, Butterfly Gold margarine bowl
 My challenge was to craft the coaster using only items on hand - and quickly - no fussing!

Snoopy and Charlie Brown heart shaped cookie cutters

I had some similar colored fabric and painters dropcloth squares for the background.
A touch of machine stitching and hand stitching later...

Mug 'n coaster

...and there it is!
