Chicken Mug Rug

I have been reading about Mug Rugs and have found several very good tutorials online for different types.

First I thought about making a place mat, and I decided to make a chicken themed mat to use with my tea cups and snack.

The mug rugs I saw were a bit smaller than I wanted and a place mat was too large, so I came up with this design and size that is just right for a cup and a snack.

Well, it is just right for me.

Kristine brought home 
a bunch of boxes 
Girl Scout Cookies.
I just had to raid the boxes
for the photos... yum!

I was going to make the back out of scraps and use up some of the fabric waste. Next time...

The brown fabric has hearts on the right side and arrows on the reverse. I'm sure the arrows are not supposed to be used, but I think they are cute, so I put a piece in wrong side up.

Oh!... I can't lie... it was a mistake... I made an oops... but still the arrows look ok and it kinda looks like a plan. I like it!

I like this solid color
chicken mug rug
because it shows up the shape 
of the chicken better
or doesn't look so confusing
or I just like it better?

Anyway this is my favorite!

I really like your chicken mug rug. I'm inspired to try and make a couple for gifts and one for me too. Us chicken lovers cannot have too much chicken stuff.
