Monday Modern Mug Mats

 Happy Monday!  I just spent that last four hours making these super cute mug mats with a little help from my mother.  Julia graduated* from high school on Friday, and she wants to give gifts to a few teachers and her guidance counselor.  The underclassmen have a couple more days of final exams, so she's hoping to deliver these tomorrow.


When I was in Christmas Tree Shop a few weeks ago, I picked up a few mugs for $1 each with the thought that I could make matching mats for last minute gifts.  Now I need to buy more!


I dug through my scrap bin of modern prints and pulled all the blues for this one.  Pretty!
 

I'm not crazy about this green one, but it'll do.
 

I really like this bright one!  I think it will go to the Environmental Biology teacher.
 

I'm excited to be linking up to Sew Modern Monday again!  It's been a while.  I hope to see you all again soon.


* I'll need to do a graduation post tomorrow.

They'll make great presents!

P.S. At the risk of appearing thick...what's an 'underclassman'?!!
