Here I am holding up two mug rugs. Mug rugs are oversized quilted coasters, approximately 6 X 9 inches. These are reversible. The other side is a fabric with a chicken soup recipe printed on it in either red or black. When they get dirty or stained, they go into the wash with the other kitchen towels. No maintenance here.
The inside batting is a heat resistant material used in oven mitts. I purchased it at my local fabric chain.
Mug rugs are a great way to:
1. Use up scraps.
2. Try out new techniques in a small way before committing to something larger.
3. Create gifts.
I’m going to add some to the Small Works section in my Gallery.
