I am continuing to make coffee cups using my Rise and Shine Coffee pattern (available in my Etsy, Craftsy and website shops) to suit the personalities of the main characters in the Gilmore Girls television series.
You know this is Mrs. Kim’s cup, right? Mrs. Kim is Lane’s mother. She owns an antique shop in Stars Hollow. She is very strict and religious, often hosting Bible study in her home. She also helped Lane’s fiance rewrite a pop song to help him find his potential and demonstrate that he could support Lane.
This is Lane’s coffee cup. Lane is Mrs. Kim’s daughter and Rory’s best friend. She was raised in a strict household where she hid things like rock CDs and tshirts under her floorboards (see the tiny floorboard strip?). She joins a band where she is a drummer. That’s how she meets her husband Zack who loves her signature glasses and misses them when she tries contacts.
This is Christopher’s coffee cup. Christopher is Rory’s Dad. He owned an Indian motorcycle (and yes, that’s an actual Indian motorcycle fussy cut that I tracked down!). After a long period of absence, he appeared at the house with a dictionary for Rory. I highlighted the word “time” in the dictionary print because Lorelai and Christopher always had such bad timing. Christopher and Lorelai got married spontaneously on a trip to Paris. The marriage didn’t last.
This is the last cup for today and it has to be Miss Patty’s, right? Miss Patty runs a dance studio in Stars Hollow. She is always alluding to former romances and shooting looks at young men. I used arrows to suggest cupids arrows and romance. The musical notes are for Miss Patty’s past as a singer.
I’m having lots of fun with this and hoping that you are too! I plan to sew 3 more cups and then make these into a quilt top!
