Mug Rug

I have a male secret tatted angel and what do you send him???? HUMMMMMMMMM this month I made a mug rug with bits of tatting all over.  Mug rugs are the hottest thing on the net. I always have a mug rug/coaster for my cup of tea/coffee.

This is a good idea. I've made a few but not for the men (yet!) I'd be worried about getting spills on the tatting but that's probably because I don't tat. I have managed a picot with the needles!!

If something gets spilled on to it, use a little Shout and throw it into the washer with a load of towels. It will give it some color. I sew my foundation on to a piece of felt then add the backing. Tatting is a very strong lace but be sure ends are secure. I leave tails and sew them to the back and use invisable thread to sew the tatting down.
