It is almost Easter and if you have time for some Easter sewing I have a couple of small scrap projects that you will be able to finish in a couple of hours. It is also a lot of fun to play around with what fabrics, colours and thread to use. I have made an easter version of the mug rug that I made a tutorial for a couple of weeks ago. You can find the tutorial and pattern on my tutorials page or here.
