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!

I had never heard of a mug rug before, but they are awfully cute!  I may just have to join you (that is if I have an available swap slot)!

Yes, exactly...fun and wee Smiley. It will also be a no extras swap.

I'm thinking that we'd make one but we could opt for two partners? I'm open though. Is this something you'd want a set of?

yay no extras! i personally dont think i would want a matched set. but several in different patterns, colours, themes and ideas would be awesome (for coffee dates and laundry days) so i guess i am thinking two partners...and a second round Wink

Oh yes please! I think that would be fun! I want a mug rug, especially after seeing some cute ones in giveaway day on sew mama sew! (That is when I learned of their existence/awesomeness- sadly I didn't win one!)

Oh I didn't know Sew Mama Sew did a giveaway of mug rugs?! How fun! Do you have a link, canamharris?

sloth - I'm with you, I think I'd prefer non-matched sets so we'll plan on going with one rug per partner but you can choose to have 2 partners if you want.

I need to figure out my swap organizing calendar and then pick a date to open this one up. I might end up opening earlier depending on the Hoopla R4 schedule. I'll be sure to keep you all posted!

I'm thinking I might get this started up earlier than I had originally planned Smiley. I'll be organizing round 4 of the hoopla at the end of January so I think it will be better timing to open this up now. I'll post a link here as soon as it's available.
