Large Oval Mug Rugs
Embroidery designs that combine yarn with embroidery stitches to create lofty realistic texture on a small scale for a mug rug or for a special doll rug. A special foot is required for this technique.
The yarn you choose will need to slide easily through the opening in the couching foot that fits your machine. I have successfully used I Love This Cotton, Peaches & Creme, and Caron Bliss yarns; for the Mug Rugs, I prefer the first two.
Variegated yarns yield interesting stripe patterns and variegated threads create interest in the fringe.
Designs measure about 5 x 7 inches without fringe to about 5.5 by 7.5 inches with widest fringe.
Formats include EXP, HUS, JEF, PCS, PES, and VP3.
