This week’s #mugrugchallenge winner is @sharon1216, otherwise known offline as Sharon. She chats about her “wine rug” on her blog post(just scroll down after you read about her cute doggie quilt ; ) There even room enough cheese & crackers and even a few grapes on your wine rug, Sharon — We love it!
We know Sharon has inspired everyone to create the own #mugrug, for whatever beverage they like best, no judgement! You’ve got about two and a half weeks left to enter, and mugrugs are quick to make, so you can actually get in multiple entries…act fast, and remember to include #MarcusMugshot when you post to instagram.
Not on Instagram? Just emailyour photo instead…either way, you’ll be on your way to a chance to win one of these, or a similar assortment: Good luck to all!
Congratulations to this week’s Marcus Mugrug Challenge winner, Bonnie Scott, aka @joyfuladornments! Her particularly artful mugrug features the added dimension of prairie points, in a cool and contemporary color palette. It could just as easily be hung on the wall as placed under her favorite cup. Extra credit for the added dazzle of her well-coordinated glass bead earring adornments, and great quilting, too! Thanks for a fun entry, Bonnie. Your mug-and-fabric prize will be on its way to you shortly…
And for the rest of you…your own entries can be simple or elaborate, just be sure to enter before April 30 – you’ve still got 3 weeks, but don’t delay! In addition to these free projects by our own Marcus fabric designers (shown below), you can stitch up your own original design, or make one from a commercial pattern. Thanks to everyone who’s entered so far, and remember, you can submit as many mugrugs as you like…keep ’em coming!
Our next lucky Marcus Mugrug Challenge winner is @jpearl05, also known as Pearl. Her clever juxtaposition of traditional prints with solids in a modern, wonky setting makes it just right for almost any home setting. Nice job, Pearl!
We’re two-thirds of the way thru the Challenge, so be sure to enter now through April 30 for your chance at a fun mug-and-fabric combo, maybe like this one.
Simply make your mugrug, up to 9″ x9″ in size, and using at least one Marcus of Studuio 37 fabric print. Design your own like Pearl did, or recreate one of our free designer mugrug projects. Then, post it to Instagram with #MarcusMugshot (or email your entry to us). Warning: These mugrugs are a bit addictive, but luckily, you can enter as often as you like, with a separate post or email for each entry. Good Luck!
Our third random #mugrugchallenge winner took inspiration from her group of 1930s Aunt Grace prints by Judie Rothermel, with the contemporary touch of striped binding. And we love her embroidered “Place Mug Here” instructions, just in case you weren’t sure how to use this thing ; )
Her efforts earned @lanakuehne one of our official Challenge mugs filled with fabrics — she might even be inspired to whip up another and enter again!
And for the rest of you, there’s still time to enterthis fun and easy challenge, and your entry is included in every weekly drawing now thru April 30 (unless you win earlier, of course…) Bst of all, you don’t even have to send us the actual mugrug, just post the photo with #MarcusMugshot and keep it to enjoy (or give as a gift).
So, the sooner you enter, the more chances you have to win! What are you waiting for??
Now, here’s a little tip for the rest of you…While we have no shortage of great fabric prizes, we only have a limited number of these very cool Marcus mugs available, sooooo, the sooner you enter the Challenge, the better your chances of winning a mug-and-fabric combo in our random weekly drawing (the fabrics will vary!) We’ll draw one lucky entry every Tuesday now thru April 30, and post the winners on Wednesdays. Be sure to use #MarcusMugshot when you enter. And Good Luck!
