Corked! Pattern Set - Vines/Flowers 1,2,3

A 6"x 6" embellished mug rug or tile made with real cork and wool fabrics

Part of my newest series of patterns for 6″x6″ tiles and mug rugs – aptly named CORKED! since all patterns in this series feature the combination of actual cork fabric (not fabric that is printed to look like cork!) and wool. I have had such fun developing this unique combination as well as these patterns which can be created within a day or two. Used as mug rugs, they feature a heavy weight interfacing and are wonderful for protecting any surface from the heat of a hot beverage mug. And if you add a hanger, they make delightful wall decor. Cork is very sustainable and easily cleaned. These little tiles are totally addictive; you can used any of the 3 patterns to ‘mix and match’ suggested colors, embellishments, and even the cork and wool!

These single page patterns are sold in sets of 3 different patterns – all printed on one side of heavy 24 lb. paper which is heavy enough to be durable, but still able to provide transparency for tracing the actual sized templates. In this set you will receive all patterns for the models shown – Vines/Flowers 1, Vines/Flowers 2, and Vines/Flowers 3 . These patterns include a full sized illustration, a list all materials to be used, as well as directions for completing a tile, but they do not specify colors nor do they include directions for specific stitches. They do include a link to the DesignAndBeMary YouTube channel for tutorial videos on the use of beads and stitch techniques. Be sure and view the small photos featured below this text for what these patterns look like as well as samples of completed tiles/mug rugs. Refer to the photos for my color choices in making the sample models. Price is for the set of 3.

Consider adding a Sampler card of Jeana Kimball Embroidery/Redwork needles – shown in the photos below. I have used her needles for all my wool embroidery and found them to be exceptional in quality. I tend to use the size 9 which allows passing through most Japanese beads (sz. 11 and 8) while threaded with a sz. 12 perle cotton. Their sharper point is also useful in providing easy passage through any thick or tightly woven materials – such as fabric backed cork. This sampler is a great way to test out these needles (which can also be used for other embroidery projects!) If interested in adding these to your pattern order please use the drop down menu below to select the addition.

As a side note: As I am primarily a pattern designer, I do not often offer kits, but I have made and will be listing 23 one-of-a-kind kits for a various number of these patterns. Due to ‘website issues’ these kits will only be sold via PayPal invoicing after receiving the purchaser’s email information. (It is not necessary for the buyer to have a PayPal account). While all kits include a single pattern, should you decide to purchase other patterns I can include those in the invoice – saving you postage and a split order..
