3 new mug mats

pink, orange and green; fabric scraps from my stash and Nancy's stash;
small green and white dots binding is from our kids' childhood curtains;
9" x 11 1/2"
Once again, mug mats are what I create when I need to play with color and fabrics. Emphasize PLAY. I got inspiration from various places, such as my Pinterest color board, and also a Chef's Table episode!


I created this after watching a "Chef's Table" episode on Francis Mallman;
totally inspired by his wild, free, elegant life in Patagonia;
8" x 11"

back of Patagonia
Green and black paisley is an old Civil War print.

This cream floral is very old, maybe 1950s?
Up-cycled navy floral dress, blue men's shirt, and white and blue men's shirt,
all thrifted; 9" x 9 1/2"
