I understand that mug rugs have been around for a while but they are new to us.
A small quilting project, they provide an ideal way to try out new quilting designs whilst being able to complete relatively quickly.
Somewhere between a coaster and a place mat, they provide a nice snack place for your coffee/tea with space for a treat to eat as well.
You can make them in any colour and any design that you choose. Just for starters Linda made a few:-
This one Linda made for me with fabrics of my choice - love it!
This one belongs to our Mum - perfect for her.
Just for fun. This one was made from scraps from a quilting project featuring Kaffe Fasset fabrics.
Maybe you like the concept but not for your favourite mug. Another use could be for a home base for remote controls.
