Go to the event page for the Holiday Mug rug at www.sewingonline.sulky.com
(it will be in your "My Library"). On the first page, right under the first section you'll see "Download Your Freebie". Make sure when you print the Cup of Cheer Printable-Applique .pdf out (the size you prefer), that you have your printer set for 100% and not something like "fit to page". This is very important. Also, this technique is an option, you do not need to cut out the appliques, you can do it just like you do any applique embroidery design: running the placement line, placing the fabric, run the tack-down, and trim. But the intent of the event is to teach you options.
