One felt solution

Although a couple of ideas have presented themselves as to how I can use up my felted knitwear in a way which fits my work - as can be seen here in my work blog, it suddenly occurred to me that one way of keeping a sample of the colours which I find so seductive, and the feel which is scrummy, is to make mug mats.  A selection of samples, in effect, of which the below are the first.
I cut out a circle from the main body patterned felt, using two yarns, and then another matching circle from the collar, using one yarn.  So far I have only stitched the reds together, using a blanket stitch round the edge.  It seems to work OK - a little precarious with a tall glass, but definitely good for a mug.
