PDF Pattern to make this Easter chicks themed mug rug or mini quilt which measures 6 1/2" x 10"

You can use them for setting your mug on with a snack, or my favorite way, leaning them against the wall in my hutch. You can even stitch rings to the back and hang on your wall.

These are the funnest of things to make! If you choose the machine applique, you can whip these up in no time. They make great gifts when given with a cute mug. They are so easy whether you hand applique or machine applique. The most difficult part is trying to decide what fabrics to use.

I guide you through the entire process from beginning to end. I explain how to do it with hand applique and machine applique. I also give you tips and ideas for variations using different materials. I also give you lots of tips and illustrations.

I've made my patterns very easy to read and understand. I give you a complete list of everything you will need to complete the project. I've broken everything down into step by step instructions and have included lots of full color illustrations. The pattern pieces are very crisp and neatly drawn using a computer program.

Small scraps of fabric for appliques
1/8 yard of light weight paper backed fusible webbing, I used Heat N bond Lite
6 1/2 x 10 inch piece of fabric for top (see supply notes about starting with bigger fabric if desired)
6 1/2 x 10 inch piece of fusible fleece, I used Pellon brand
7 1/2 x 11 inch piece of fabric for back
2 3/4” x 44” strip of fabric for binding
Thread to match fabrics
Embroidery floss to match or contrast with applique fabrics (plus brown for feet)
2 mini (1/4” or 7 mm) black buttons for chick’s eyes
2 small (5/8” or 15 mm) yellow buttons for flower centers

The above are just suggestions for embellishments. You can certainly use anything you want, or have on hand to embellish your appliques.

General supplies:
Scissors, pins, sewing and embroidery needles, embroidery hoop, paper & pencil, paper or cardstock (for printing pattern pieces), iron & ironing board, sewing machine, cutting mat with ruler & rotary cutter (optional), pressing cloth or piece of light colored, 100% cotton fabric for fusing your fleece to the top (depending on the brand you use, some fusible fleece instructions call for it).

Supplies notes:
For best results use 100% cotton fabrics. Fabrics can be pre-washed but do not use a fabric softener. It can prevent your adhesive from sticking.

If you prefer to use a non-fusible fleece or batting instead of the fusible fleece, you will want to cut it a little bigger than your top piece and trim it down to size later. If you do this, you will also need to use some machine or hand quilting stitches to keep the layers from shifting. You’ll do this toward the end, right before you attach your binding.
