Mug organizer

My local quilt circle met today. We're a large group and usually have about 20 or more of our members attending any one meeting, though there are about 40 on the rolls. We take turns sharing ideas for projects with each other, and today's project was a mug organizer. It's a really cute idea for using a mug to keep quilting notions handy. Since I'd recently made that flower pot to do the same job, I decided that this would make a really good gift. There are little pockets both inside and out for pencils, seam rippers, and that sort of thing. Isn't it cute?

Still, it's amazing that I managed to make it at all. It was one of those days. I was really pleased that I'd finally remembered to take an extension cord with me for my little Featherweight, but I forgot to take pins, scissors, fabric markers and thread to match my fabric! Yikes! Fortunately, another member had spare pins, someone else had markers to share, and I scrounged scissors and thread from still others. Tomorrow is, as they say, another day. ;)

    1. Thanks for your comment, Lidka.

      I'm not sure which tree you're referencing, since you commented on this post that doesn't have a tree. ;) However, I can't just send a pattern, since there are copyright laws to observe. You might want to do a Google search for the pattern you want and see where you can purchase it.

      Good luck! :)
