I recently discovered Mug Rugs and they seem to be one of those things you never know you really need until you have one Smiley. They look like they would be fun and pretty easy to make too! From what I can tell they are roughly 5" x 8" and are generally done in patchwork designs. I suppose they could be made of other materials/techniques too though!

Would anyone be interested in swapping 1 or 2 mug rugs?

I would totally love to do this! All the pictures are adorable and I think these would be fun to make! I'm already thinking up ideas, small embroidery would be cute!

Embroidery is a great idea!

Glad to see there is some interest. It would probably be a month or so before I'll have time to organize this.

If anyone else wants to get it going sooner that's cool with me Smiley.

This is such a cute idea and would make great Christmas gifts with a mug. (Okay I'm a couple weeks late, alas!)

A month or so sounds fine by me.  Smiley

I thought the same thing, kaz! I wish I had discovered mug rugs a few weeks earlier because they would have made perfect office gifts. Oh well - they'll still be fun little winter gifts for fellow Craftsters Smiley.

OOoo, the rug mugs in the links are so pretty. I've recently fallen in fascination with free motion quilting so the flowers and shroom rugs have me drooling. I'm a novice at quilting but I might be able to talk myself into this swap. Smiley

I'm not a quilting expert by any means and I've been looking for little projects to practice free motion quilting. I think these little mug rugs will be perfect!
