You have coasters for your cold drinks don’t you? Well, don’t leave out your warm drinks… give them a MUG RUG!
In this swap we’ll be crafting one mug rug for our partners.
- Mug rugs can vary in size but should be roughly around 5” x 8”.
- Any techniques can be used…patchwork, embroidered, knit, etc. but keep in mind that the rug should be able to absorb a bit of moisture and protect surfaces from warm drinks.
- Please only send one completed mug rug. No extras.
- You may opt to have 2 partners. See notes below for more info.*
- Posting to the discussion thread or PM’ing organizers is required at least every 2 weeks.
- Have fun!!

Sending, Receiving, and Feedback
SENDING: Take pictures of your items before you send. When sending, you must use a DC# (or for overseas keep that receipt). Keep your receipt until your partner receives. PM organizer and partner when you send.
RECEIVING: PM organizer and partner when you receive. Take pictures of received items. (Please take quality pictures, like ones you would take of your work.) Post pictures in gallery in a timely manner.
FEEDBACK: Given when a package is received (verified through PM or DC#) I will be keeping track of what has been received by gallery pictures (This is why it is important for you to take pictures of your items, just in case your partner does not) *Please PM if there is difficulty with pictures.*GALLERY: http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=371365
