Moonlight Serenade mug rug

Yes, you can make a Halloween mug rug in the hoop of your embroidery machine! Follow the steps of the design, adding fabric as you change thread colors. We’ll show you how in our newest FREE Webcast with Desiree Habicht of Desiree’s Designs. If you’re asking yourself, “What’s a Mug Rug?” You’ll find out by registering for the event!


This adorable Halloween mug rug, designed by Desiree’s Designs, features a cat, moon, spider and jack-o-lantern – all great motifs for Halloween! The best part is that the design also works for a small pillow or tote bag (we’ll show you that, too!).
