Ladies, look at me....


Man Mug Rug by Poppyprint

I'm a man mug rug. Now look at your other mug rugs. See the pink fabric? The embroidery? The girly design? Now, back to me. I'm bold and contemporary.

Man Mug Rug Oblique by Poppyprint

I'm the mug rug your man could have. See the masculine triple-machine-straight-stitch? The solid colours and simple, yet compelling design elements? I'm the mug rug your man could have at the office. I'm on a desk.

{for those of you scratching your heads, just watch this} Best ad campaign EVER...well, since "I'm a mac - I'm a P.C." anyway. I can watch these ads all day and never stop laughing.

So, when your husband says "hey, I want a mug rug for work!", you've got to deliver!

I love man projects! Great job!

Oh my gosh Krista, I have just watched that ad and it is the funniest thing I have seen in ages and ages and ages - I have to go back to youtube and find all the rest in the series - I love the final line "I'm on a horse"

Lynne said...

Oh and now watched another and my favourite line is "swan dive" - these ads are just totally and utterly genius and hilarious. My favourite ad of all time is not funny but is kind of cool and naff and retro too:

Well what a mug rug, and what an ad lol! Don't think I have seen an Old Spice advert in years so that was brill...now back to the man mug rug, your man mug rug is the man mug rug ALL men would love. I love it. I am getting very jealous of all these mug rugs lol. I have so much to do with fund-raisers at the moment that I just have to look at my machine and think soon...soon!

Well this is cool! So your husband appreciates purple? It's my brother's favorite color, but one I can never really figure out how to work into things. You did it beautifully-- or should I say handsomely?

Patchwork and Play said...

Jodi said...

Excellent! But it's still pretty anyway!

I love those ads too! My husband and I actually stop our dvr'd programs just to watch them.

carol said...

I always tell my husband that he uses girly girl soap in the shower....ugh! I hate it when a guy smells like flowers!!! Yuck!

I am a man, I drink coffee, black coffee. I like a manly mug rug. This IS a manly mug rug and man could love.

Pam said...

Forget the mug rug I want the man on a horse!!

Tiffany said...

You are killing me! All the animals are looking at me from a safe distance, as I roll around on the floor laughing my head off. Krista YOU ROCK! The man mug rug is appropriately masculine...you definitely delivered. And that beautiful man on a horse...well, I'm just gonna say "thanks"!

Ethne said...

Krista - this is just super - I love it - more modern / masculine quilty 'things' like this should be around - office cushions, wall art etc

Wendy said...

This is fab! Now I just need to make my husband aware of the existance of mug rugs, and then make him want one bad and I've got Christmas sorted!

What Comes Next? said...

love those ads! your Mr MR is perfect!

Mrs Moen said...

Love it! I have to check out that stitch on my machine, it looks great!
I have seen the ad before and have to admit I wondered if it was for real at first or if it was a joke - I too was laughing.-)
Thanks for the enjoyable ad revisit and fun on a Friday night!

Trish said...
