Sewing Directions:

Take 1 colored or print 5-inch and 1 white/white print. Making four square sets with right sides together. Sew ¼ inch around the squares and do that to all four sets. Next cut the four squares corner to corner, (Pic 1) making 4 half-squared triangles. Open them up and press to the dark sided fabric. Square them up to a 3-inch square. Sew the squares together to make the envelope. (Pic 2) Press open. Look Love Notes! Your square should measure 5 ½ inch square. Next sew 3 strips of the assorted fabric together, press open, this rectangle should measure 5 ½ by 6 inches. Sew your love notes block to your rectangle piece. Press. Open. Your block should measure 5 ½ by 11 inches. Place the top, backing rights together, then
batting. Sew a ¼ inch seam around the block leaving on of the ends open, so that you can pull the block thru. Iron, fold the end a ¼ inch under. Sew a ¼ inch around the edge of the block. I stitched in the ditch around the envelope. There it is a Love Note Mug Rug.
