The mugs are plain white mugs that I got at the Dollar Store. I loved the look of them as they reminded me of these ones that I love from Pottery Barn. I have had my eye on the Emma Monogrammed Mug since getting the catalog and I knew that I could create an easy copykat DIY version with ease.
One Dollar Store Mug + Porcelain Marker = Copykat Emma Monogrammed Mug. I did my best to free hand each initial and then followed the instructions on the marker which required 24 hours to dry and then a quick 30 minute bake in the oven to set the ink.
Then came the fun part, the mug rugs! I followed THIS tutorial which was wonderful. I had never done any sewing of this sort and I was able to complete three mug rugs in about an hour.
I had a really fun time picking out the fabrics and then deciding what order to put them in.
I decided not to quilt the main part of the mug rug and instead just did the borders.
