Ugly Sweater Mug Rug

I joined an ugly sweater mug rug swap. 
I know I know it is almost time for Christmas why join a swap right?  
Cuz, ugly sweaters ROCK!

The pattern is by Kid Kiddy and can be found here.  
I had the chance to meet Kerri at Glamp Stitchalot and see her original quilt.  
It was adorable and she was so sweet.

So, sign up I did.  I received my partner's name and preferences and sought out fabrics to use. 
I personally would have loved to make one from the first photo fabrics.

I thought this might be more to her taste.

But...cat snowmen were pretty cute too!

In the end I went with the second group of fabrics.  
I am pretty happy with how it turned out.  Matching (or trying to match) t
hat stripe on the sleeves was a pain, but so worth it in the end. 

Look at the cute fabric I found for the back too!

I HO HO Hope you are working on some fun Christmas things too.
