Very nice mug rug. I changed row 19 to finish off the heart!

I'm new to the 'yarn' and 'knitting' world but made this cute little rug mug this morning...ALL BY MY SELF! This may be a stupid question but how would I launder this? It's 100% cotton. I'm a little nervous to use it! Thanks for the pattern! Nicole

The pattern finishes up but then it doesn't tell us about putting on the fringe!

There is a problem with this pattern. After Row 18, the pattern is "cut off" at the top of the heart (not rounded). Can you correct this?
