EPP Rose Star Mega Mug Rug: Finishing {Sizzix Tutorial}

Do you remember my post about getting started on this bright bunny English Paper pieced (EPP) mug rug, my Sizzix Design Team debut? I’m sure you have your stack of basted pieces all ready to go, sitting at the edge of your seat patiently awaiting my finishing directions, right? Great! Either way, I’m excited to finally share the finishing directions today on the Sizzix blog.

basting epp mug rugThis is a great project for those of you who want to do more hand stitching in the uber portable form of EPP, but who are not quite ready to hand baste and piece an entire quilt.

  • stitching the basted pieces together;
  • savvily removing the template papers;
  • attachingΒ the completed EPP to the background fabric;
  • removing excess fabric to help reduce bulk; and,
  • using the backing to bind the mug rug.

These are all great techniques for any EPP project.

One little forewarning: making a bright and bold mug rug like this one may draw extra attention to the plate of treats you rest on it. This most likely will result in extra sneaky small hands swiping your snacks.

  2. Your fabrics choices are a most unexpected color combination, but they so totally work! Great fussy work on the bunnies… it’s kind of what pulls you into the whole project. Hey, I’ve seen that “now you see it, now you don’t” trick in my house too! Hmmm… small epp project? Taj, will still have to think about it ; ) (or just google yours)
