To celebrate, and to thank my coworkers for being so welcoming and wonderful, I made them each a mug rug customized to their interests (e.g. Vancouver Whitecaps FC soccer, sailing), personalities (e.g. classic, sunshiney), tastes (e.g. purple, bling) or a particular fact about them (e.g. recent transplant to Canada from UK, meaning of their name). Here is a collage of the 10 (yes, 10) mugrugs I made.
They were *very* well received, I'm happy and proud to say.
There are individual photos of each mug rug in my Flickr photostream. They're all my own design, and I sourced the foundation paper piecing patterns for the Maple Leaf here, the Union Jack here, and the sailboat here (I adjusted one sail slightly so they weren't the same size).
That was such a good idea! All of these are looking great :)ReplyDelete
