DETAILS OF SWAP:

In this swap well be crafting a mug rug.  I'd thought about making it a seasonal or holiday themed mug rug swap, but decided to leave that up to each participant to specify in their Questionnaire for their partner.

  • Mug rugs can vary in size and shape but should be roughly around 5 x 8.
  • Any techniques can be usedpatchwork, 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.
  • Extras are optional, but please discuss this with your swap partner so that no one feels bad for not sending "enough".
  • There is a 2 partner option for those who want 2 partners Smiley
  • We have a 3 week crafting time.
  • Please post to the discussion thread or PM your organizer at least once each week.
  • Have fun!!

oooh I suddenly realized upon seeing this swap posted that I would love to have a Halloween mug rug.  I need feedback first to have room, but should have that well before signups close Smiley

Yay, happy to have folks signing up already -- this is going to be FUN!  Welcome, Renstar, kbrison, mambosushi and rscowtown!

jexxican , I think the answers are... Yes, probably, and ABSOLUTELY  Grin

DaphadillyArt , I think a TM style mug rug could be super cool.  I just did my first TM style patches for the recent TM patch swap, and it was SO FUN.  Crocheting could also be a cool option, if that seems more straightforward.

fancybutch I hope you can join us!

I just love a good mug rug swap. Cheesy

Oooh...I love mug rugs so very much!  I'm trying not to over-commit myself, but I am pretty sure I can squeeze in some time for a mug rug!
