I've been looking at all of the great mug rugs posted lately, and have been wanting to try one.  It occurred to me that if they are upscaled a bit, they could make a fantastic washable mat for under pet food dishes.  I think I'm right, don't you?



This one's going to a new home, but our new cat Bindi discovered me taking a photo.  I think she needs one of her own!

That's a super great idea!  I must make one for our kitties, too.

Your Bindi is lovely, her eyes look so elegant! Cheesy

So cute! I love this idea!! Our doxies have little bowls and like to make messes. This would be perfect for them.

However, if I want to make one for our Great Danes it would have to be the size of a twin sized quilt Smiley.

What a fantastic idea.  Stylish and functional.  May I ask if you used any special padding to make it?  Ive never made one, but after seeing this am very tempted to.

-I give up on making TOL pendants.  If anyone would like to have my stone chips, wire and ect.  I would gladly trade it all for some knitting/crochet stuff.

-Currently crafting.....A Weasley blanket.  I'd love some squares made from fellow Craftsters.

Thanks so much for the nice comments, everyone!  I didn't use any batting for the middle.  I figured it just needed to soak up water droplets and the occasional food spill.

Thanks EkkaGrrl!  She's only 6 months old, it's hard to get a decent photo of her.  She's either tearing around the house or snuggled under a pile of blankets.

Such a fantastic idea and a cute kitty! I too might have to make one or two for the furbabies running around this place.
