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!!

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.*

I was just drinking a cup of coffee and flipping through a magazine at my kitchen table wishing that my mug had a little rug Smiley.

So excited!

I just came across these cuties!

I've been googling/flickring/etsying mug rugs all morning. My poor children probably wonder why I'm not paying them that much attention.

I also found on flickr a scrappy mug rug swap group that has TONS of ideas!

I cannot wait for this swap!

Oh and limeriot I even saw one on flickr that was in the shape of a lemon. I thought of you with your limes. It would look so cute in green instead of yellow!!

I'm not taking part in swaps just now, but just wanted to pipe in and say this looks like such an awesome swap theme - cute, small and simple!

Might have to make some mugrugs at home just because,,,
