Surfs up!

Let's go the beach!

We'll need:
Surf board - check
wet suit - check
Rad car - check, check and check

What is cooler than a fun old fashioned woody?  I love these old cars

Surf board strapped to the top - Oh yeah.

This is an 8x10" mug rug I made for my partner in the Scrappy Mug Rug swap which had a summer theme.

Want to make your own woody?

Here's a link to the pattern pieces.

And a link to the assembly schematic and instructions.

It's another foundation pieced block and could easily be made into a 10" square if you wanted to turn it into a quilt block.

Would look equally good with print or solid fabrics.  

Here's an earlier version that I accidentally made with wooden windows- yeah that's not to brilliant is it?  Oh well, it's on my desk at work - so far no one has noticed.

Surfing anyone? My Summer Scrappy Mug Rug for SWAP

If you make it yourself, I would recommend glass in the windows - or at least glass colored fabric.

Please post it in the Trilliumdesign flickr group if you do end up making it - I would love to see it!

Happy Sewing!

Too cute! I love the way you used the woody fabric. {Even in the first!}
