Memorial Day, Flag Holidays and a Giveaway

Memorial Day is only a couple of weeks away and flag holiday season will soon be here. So be prepared with the perfect table decoration or hostess gift from the Patchsmith.

First up is the Stars and Stripes mug rug pattern - applique stars with the American Flag on the side.


Or perhaps you prefer the Uncle Sam mug rug - this pattern includes instructions on strip-applique and a foolproof way of quilting the star on the side.

These two little patterns  are not just for the holidays though - they will make the perfect gift for Father's Day, a birthday or as an end-of-term 'thank you' for a favourite teacher. 

(Don't forget all PATCHSMITH PATTERNS are only $1.99 each and come with colour diagrams, easy to follow instructions and full size applique sheets.) 

Both patterns are so quick and easy to put together that you will have plenty of time to make one to give and one to keep for yourself.

Talking of giving away - 'Alie Makes' has a giveaway where you can win a $25 fabric gift certificate.  Alie also has a copy of my Spring Chicken mug rug pattern to give to the winner.

Alie is a relatively new blogger and she needs our support - so head on over and join her as she starts her journey into blogland - you never know where this new friendship may lead!   

Alie's giveaway closes this Friday, 17th May so there isn't a moment to spare.



  1. Thank you for the mention! It means a lot to me :D

    1. You're welcome. Love the 'Tutorial Tuesday' feature on your blog. That will become a favourite visit of mine.

  2. These mug rugs make me feel like summertime is not far away! How nice of you to sweeten the giveaway with the little spring chicken, too! Wish me luck! ;)

  3. Your patriotic mug rugs are a great idea for summer time hostess gifts!
    I must get busy and make up a few ahead of time!!
