#URHere

I'm not sure what possessed me to join the URHere Swap, but I did!
New Swap Group 
Sponsored by Amy/Sukie, I knew it was bound to be fun! Basic premise? Swap a Starbucks "You Are Here" mug plus something sewing related, either notions or handmade. I opted for the latter, and a mug rug seemed the obvious choice. 

Making my own paper-piecing pattern is not something I'd ever attempted. But I came up with a little something inspired by the Seattle mug, and gave it a shot. HERE is what I began with . . . it's not quite what I ended up with and it certainly isn't a complete pattern, but help yourself if you want to give it a go and make your own version. Meanwhile, this cool mug and its rug will be winging their way to a destination TBA!

Linking up with {Big} City Girl QAL.

Annabella said...

Very cool!! And I love those Starbucks' mugs...I wonder whether they have them in the UK or even here (doubtful) as there's Starbucks in Casablanca :) Yes - where will your city mug come from??

Unfortunately I do not have Starbucks close to me but this is a lovely theme for a swap. Your cup looks so much fun and the mug rug matches perfectly!

It is a cool mug rug and cup. I missed joining the swap, but probably will if there is a round 2.

Very cool mug rug, Debbie! It looks great with the mug.

I love it, your mug rug turned out so great! I looked to see the closet city for me to join in another round and it is New Orleans, not really close enough....

That is a fun swap! I think your idea of a mug rug is perfect and the one you did is so cute and appropriate for the mug. You have a lucky swap partner!

That is such a great idea for a swap! Your project is great! I saw this swap and felt the need to invest in a San Diego mug for myself yesterday! I love the Starbucks city mugs!
