DIY Jack o'Lantern Mug Rug


Jack o’Lantern


Remember that pumpkin applique from a few weeks ago? Today I'm turning it in to a mug rug for Halloween. Get the pieces here.

To make this rug, I cut a strip for the table measuring 2.5” x 8.5” and the background 5.75” x 8.5”  and sewed them together. Press the seam. Using paper backed fusible webbing (Heat n Bond lite is my favorite) I added the jack o’lantern. If you’re feeling insecure about drawing a face, here are the pieces I used. If you would like, top stitch a few trims down the right side and trim the rug to square it up. Quilt it like you would a quilt top and bind it. Now you’ve got a place to put your hot apple cider for Halloween.


Happy Sewing,
