About this Product
Talk a little turkey over a cup of coffee with this fun mug rug for Thanksgiving! There is no need to pick out yardage for this project, it's a great scrapbuster! This project is small, quick and easy to sew up. Use it as a mug rug, or as part of a festive place setting for your holiday get-togethers. Make a stack of them as a gift for someone you know that loves to throw holiday dinner parties!
10 ½” x 7 ½”

body, and light brown for the head, black or dark brown for the hat, light brown for the band, a small scrap of
yellow for the beak, a small piece of white and black for the eyes (or embroider them as shown in the picture
above), and a small scrap of red for the wattle.

Meet the Maker
Hi, and welcome to my shop! I'm Shannon and I've been designing patterns since 2012. What started as a mystery quilt to raise money for a charity walk turned into a whole thing for me! I am a quilter, machine embroiderer, sewist of various things (pretty much anything except clothes), and crafter of anything that strikes my fancy at the time. Oh, and by day I'm an electrical engineer.
I design mostly quilt patterns, but I'm hoping to branch out into some embroidery files soon!
I've been married for 21 years, and we have two children (our 20 year old son is a sailor, and our 15 year old son is in 10th grade). We also have 2 dogs, a whole clowder of cats, and a pair of rats. We live in the boonies.
