I made this mug rug for my partner in the scrappy mug rug swap. I knew my partner liked the Ghastlies and softer Halloween colors. She seemed to comment on mug rugs with handstitching, so I added the handstitching on the osnaburg. I ordered the halloween striped material just for the binding. I love stripes for bindings, but hate sewing with them anywhere else. There is also a small button embroidered spider in the lower left hand corner. I used black handquilting thread along with silver metalic thread for the spider's head and legs.
