My helpers and I decided we would like to have the children get started on Mother's Day Gifts For all the Church Ladies !
So we came up with the idea to make Mug Rugs , I ironed some plain cloth onto Freezer paper ,cut them in squares and rectangles .I gathered up some paints , stamp pads , Fabric markers and crayons.
I made a couple samples for the children to get an idea what we wanted them to do.
This is Issac's once he saw the stamps he was really into this so this one is all paint.
George the oldest boy there used markers and paint .
This is Issac's first one ,he started out with the Fabric markers, he did not have very much on it when he said he was done , I said really ! don't you think we could add some more to it , so I got him started with the stamps .
This one is a sample I made and Sarah went by this for her's
When I pick them up after letting them dry really good I will bring them all home , Iron the colors into the fabric,then use batting and backing, machine quilt them, then add the binding.
When Mothers Day comes the children will pick someone in church to give the Mug Rugs to, They will also be making all their own Mothers a card.
