Go ahead, say that post title three times fast!
I saw Angela's post with her ticker-tape style mugrug and I had an epiphany.
These cuties are the PERFECT medium for trying out new techniques or blocks or whatever. Huzzah!
Behold, an image that was previously only a sketch on some paper came to life as a scrappy mugrug. I got to try out the scribbly raw edge applique technique Anita shows in this tutorial.
Bonus discovery: finishing your binding by machine goes WAY better if you press the binding to the back before you start stitching. Look at these nice corners -- each one was done on a first go!!
