When I am making mug rugs to sell I try to have 2 similar of each group of fabric to encourage the purchase of 2. I never make them alike or even the same exact size, just similar.
The only thing these 2 have in common is that they are both batik fabrics, have the same backing and same binding.
One of these Christmas mug rugs has batiks added and the other doesn't. I was running low on scraps on the sewing table and didn't want to look for any more. I think the bottom one will go well with one that I sent home with my daughter. Now I need to get these in the mail so she will have all of them for the Gallery Crawl on the first Friday of Dec. I think my double vision is under control enough to drive 7 blocks to the post office and grocery store. It mostly bothers me when I'm tired or in a large open space. At home in smaller rooms I'm fine.
