Christmas Quilted Potholders and Mug Rugs

I am super excited to share these Christmas Quilted Potholders and Mug Rugs that I made last week!

I have been crafting for Christmas like CRAZY and I even lie in bed at night, thinking about my next project. Something has really clicked for me with sewing in the last few months and I am really enjoying my moments at the machine.

Anyhow, remember these Scrappy Quilted Potholders that I posted about last week?

I followed a tutorial that I found over at Texas Freckles. But, the whole potholder sewing frenzy started when I was looking at the potholders that my friend Stephanie over at Built to Last had made for me. Here they are:

I couldn't really find a tutorial that I liked, so I just looked at hers and whipped up my own version!

I used the crazy zig-zag on the back that I learned from the crazy potholders tutorial.

They were so much fun that I made another pair a few days later!

They are made with two layers of Insul-brite on the inside.

After that I had some small pieces of Insul-brite left over, so I made two Scrappy Quilted Mug Rugs!

How cute is this?

I think the little Santa peeking out from the middle with his gifts is SO SWEET!

If you have been keeping up with me this month, you have seen a lot of this Christmas fabric that I have been using for my projects. I only bought a yard of each, and I have made:

1 Shabby Ruffle Holiday Wreath
2 Crazy Scrappy Quilted Christmas Potholders
4 Traditional Quilted Christmas Potholders
1 Christmas Headband
14 Christmas Rosette Pins
2 Quilted Mug Rugs
5 Mini Rosette Christmas Stockings (will share later in the week)

I'd say that was a pretty good use of all of that fabric!

What have you been working on? Don't forget to share with me tomorrow for Tell Me Tuesday!
