Gremlins, Goblins, and Ghouls Oh My! Blog Hop


It's time for another awesome blog hop, this time hosted by Joan from MooseStashQuilting!

Here's a list of today's participants:

The theme for this hope is, clearly, Halloween! It's such a fun topic to explore. The past two years I've created wool felt mug rugs with a Halloween theme. 

First there was a Vampire mug rug, aka Dracula:

Then last year, I created a friend for Dracula, known to all of us as Frankenstein:

This year, I've made two more additions to the motely crew.

The decrepit Mummy:

And that ol' pumpkin head, Evil Jack:

The mug rugs each measure 9" x 12" and are made from wool felt and embroidery floss. You could also make them in cotton, using raw-edge applique. You'd just have to add a seam allowance to the 9" x 12" pieces, and then quilt and bind as desired.

If you'd like to make any of these monstrous mug rugs, the FREE patterns can be found here:

FYI...The free patterns on my blog will remain available, but I have recently closed my Etsy pattern shop. I'm going to focus on creating pieces to fulfill my creative impulses, and not as a money-making enterprise. I will, however, continue to post free patterns from time to time, and to participate in blog hops!


I love to read your comments, and will reply to each of them via email unless you are a "No Reply Blogger."
