We picked up these great mugs at a local fair several years ago. A local vendor made their own sodas and rootbeers, so when you purhcased these mugs, you got a discount on refills while at the fair. We thought the mugs had a great shape and were eager to take them home and get creative. We picked up a bag of scrap leather pieces and glue.
I LOVE the graphic...it always cracked me up.
Fast-forward about six years and we finally did something with them. I stumbled across them, two moves and three apartments later, in the back of a cupboard. After cleaning them really good, we sat down and started working with them. My boyfriend decided he wanted a solid color. I wanted a more "patchwork" mug, though after looking at both of them, I like his solid color much better now.
