Mug Rug


I love Mug Rugs!
There is something about them that makes a
cup of tea that much more special.


The Yoyo Mama's are doing a Mug Rug
for the christmas exchange this week.
I have made several and didn't like any of them.
But I finally like one.
So I really hope who ever gets mine
likes it too.


I couldn't get this picture to turn...
oh well you get it...
I always quilt up a yard of a fabric I really like
then I can use it for mug rugs, hot pads and
oven mitts. Makes it easy for a fast gift if I
have some on hand.


When I make these I use the same stuff for the inside
that I use to make hotpads. I can't remember what it is called.
I have been racking my brain to tell you ....
but ...I cant remember.
I buy it at JoAnn's and I am sure if you ask them
for the batting for hotpads they will take you right to it.



Since we are "YoYo Mamas" I had to work in a Yoyo.
This was so fun but I can't believe how much time I spent
trying to decide what kind to make...
I looked at a million (I am sure thats an accurate count)
mugs and cups and I thought I would make one that matches...
Then I thought a strip mug and a polka dot mug rug...
or a floral mug and a strip mug rug....
or a plain mug and a bright mug rug...
see the possibilities.....
then I saw the glass mug....
Goes with everything....YEAH!
then what fabric....oh my Gosh!!!
I will try to get pictures to show you
of the other ones the girls made.

Oh my, my stomach always seems to get that butterfly flipping when I come to your site, just like going over back roads in Indiana on a summer evening with cousins or finally getting to bite into grandmas Christmas table of sweetness.
Your heart just shows in all you do and thank you so much for all you share.

I really like this one - the first thing I thought was a pin cushion built right onto the mug rug - a tea and stitching mug rug. Thanks for sharing - I think it is perfect. Judy C
