Mug Rug 1 - I Love Quilting

In honor of National Quilting Day on March 21, 2015, we introduced this cute little mug rug for yourself and your favorite quilting buddy.

This Mug Rug goes together quickly using a fast Flying Geese technique and fusible webbing. Best of all, the small amounts of fabric required make this a great scrap-buster project!

Free to everyone!

Mug Rug 2 - Choices

A mug rug is always a neat item for a desk or for a table, especially when you are trying to keep a surface clean. A mug hug keeps your beverage warm a bit longer, which is really a nice thing for those at work who get busy and must leave their coffee or tea sitting for a while. Either a rug or a hug as a gift is nice, but the two-piece set as a gift is a very useful thing to have around! Choose the embroidery text that bests fits your needs.

Instructions are given to complete an entire set, but you can easily make just the hug or just the rug or, if you like, even one rug with two hugs. Fabric requirements are given for one complete set. One fabric is all you need, as the back and front use the same fabric.

Free to everyone!

Mug Rug 3 - Cookies and Cup

There is something about simple geometrics that is very appealing. The round, curvilinear lines forming circles in this pattern are truly pleasing to the eye. They make a cute mug rug design for both adults and children.

Children will especially love using it! If served with three cookies and a glass of milk or a mug of hot cocoa already on it, they’ll have fun seeing their mug rug empty as they snack. (Don’t forget to add the marshmallows to that cocoa!) Given just the mug rug, they’ll have fun choosing their three favorite cookies to place on it along with their glass or mug. In making it, you’ll have fun, too!same fabric.

Mug Rug 5 - Morning Cuppa

I love my Morning Cuppa! Mine happens to be a nice strong cup of black coffee. Yours might be a lovely Earl Grey tea.

The smile is from that very first cuppa, but Morning Cuppa! might also bring a smile, nonetheless!

Mug Rug 10 - Scrap Fabric

Mug Rugs are a great project for using up many of our fabric scraps and even small, unused quilt blocks or partial quilt blocks. Depending upon the variety of prints you have on hand, they can be seasonal, have a holiday theme, or be made for special days like birthdays. They can be made for adults, or like the one shown here with a Beatrix Potter theme, for children. Make them for yourself and as gifts. Have fun with all of your small pieces - the ones you didn’t know what to do with.

This Mug Rug will be available July.
