Do you have a sweet little (or big) someone in your life that has found the addiction that is Minecraft? My sweet little boy found the game and we threw him a Minecraft Birthday Party for his 7th birthday. At the party I sent all the boys home with an individual Minecraft Mug Rug as party favors. Each one was different, and they got to pick their character, out of 15 characters, I created one of each.
The Minecraft Mug Rug patterns were just the beginning, and a practice run for the actual bigger gift: a Minecraft Quilt. Unfortunately I wasn’t able to complete it in time for the party – I was overwhelmed with sewing mug rugs and aprons and setting up party games, etc. But that gave me time to take a break from Minecraft for a little while, and take the time to pay attention to all the tiny little pieces, and be able to create the blocks a little better.
The finished size is roughly 60″ x 71″ and should fit nicely on his Full size bed, or be really fun to drag downstairs to the sofa while he plays Minecraft.
These are the fabrics you will need for the blocks, listed in yardage, and should give you some room for extra pieces – scraps could also work. Each block pattern will also list its fabric requirements if you would rather go block by block.
