Are you ready for some Christmas humor? How about what the elf?

I thought this machine embroidery design was really funny, especially for a mug rug! This design fits into a 5×7 hoop, so it is quick and easy to stitch out on your embroidery machine.


5×7 hoop

batting to fit into the hoop

top/bottom fabric 8×6 – if you are using felt on the back, then one fabric and one felt at approximately that size.

a scrap of fabric for the top of the elf hat: 4.5 x 4 ish

machine embroidery thread

applique scissors for trimming

Here is the video to show you step by step how to make this in the hoop embroidered mug rug – finished completely in the hoop!

    Just found your site this past week and i’ve only done a couple of these…I really love them especially the ones where they are finished when i take them out of the hoop. Thank you so very much.
