I need honest opinions (cutting me a teensy bit of slack based on the fact that I've never done any kind of applique before) but I just couldn't think of anything else that would make my partner happy and I would enjoy making. Of course, after actually doing this, I use the term enjoy rather loosely. Applique is a LOT of work. If I'd half an ounce of sense I would have started with something a lot easier.
So tell me what you think. If you got said mug rug in the mail would you be pleased or disappointed?
