Mum's Mug - Take Two

Last night I made my Mum's mug "for real". I showed my Mum the trial mug and she really liked the lino cut print on the side, but she wanted a bigger handle. She also preferred the shape of the flower mug and really liked the idea of having some flowers on her mug too, so I combined both designs and came up with this:


(The photo's are even worse than usual because they're taken in artificial light - it was just too wet and dark outside to take the photo's at the back door today.)

This is a monster of a mug! In fact it's so big it looks more like a plant pot with a handle attached! I'm not sure how much it will shrink though - the trial mug started out taller than an ordinary sized mug and is now fractionally shorter!


The trial mug is still wider though and holds 475ml or 17fl oz, compared to the usual 300ml or 10.5fl oz. I wonder how much this new mug will hold?


I suppose I'll have to wait until January to find out!

Nice mug. I too like the shape, especially for your mom. It seems more feminine with it's shapely handle and round belly. And the flowers are a cute cheerful group to meet you in the morning.

Thank you Leanne! I was wondering if the handle was too big now!
