"Tea, Earl Grey, hot."- Picard
Gather your supplies.
You'll need two pieces of fabric for your rug that are approx. the same size. A piece for your pocket and some fusable interfacing.
Start by pressing your fabric and pressing down all your sides to your pocket.
Also press your fusable interfacing onto one of your pieces for your rug.
Top stitch the top of your pocket.
- Do yourself a favor and make sure your pocket is big enough to fit a package of Earl Grey first. I ended up re-making my pocket because I didn't the first time.
Once your pocket is the right size, pin and sew it down to one side of your rug.
Next pull out your embroidery floss and use the back stitch and the satin stitch to embroider your emblem on to the opposite side of your rug.
Next place the two sides of your rug right sides together and sew around leaving a 3 inch opening to turn right-side out later.
Trim your corners and turn right side out. Press flat and top stitch all the way around.
And you're done!
