DETAILS OF SWAP:

You have around three weeks crafting time to complete this swap.

This swap consists of TWO components:
ONE: Craft your partner a mug rug!
- 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.

TWO: Fill a mug (or other vessel) with small goodies!

- This mug (or vessel) does NOT have to be handmade and can most definitely be store bought.
- The mug does NOT have to match your mug rug. We dont want to limit your creativity.
- Goodies should be small enough to fit into mug and inexpensive. (Think: Coffee sample, tea bags, small bit of chocolate or biscuits, stickers, ect.)
- In the Swap Idea thread some people expressed their desire to NOT receive a mug, in that case I will do my best to match partners who want mugs/dont want mugs.
- Suggestions for alternate vessels have been: Zipper pouch, Drawstring bag, Mini bucket/basket/bowl, Japanese Knot Bag or Bento Bag, Tea-type tin. Again, this item DOES NOT have to be crafted. This is supposed to be a light, fun, quick swap.
- If you are choosing something other than a mug please communicate with your partner to make sure you are both on the same page with any alternate vessel. (Or you may choose to just swap mug rugs with no extras!)


If you want to participate, please PM the organizer, Whistlefish, with the "Mug Rug Swap" in the subject line.

Just sent in my questionnaire!  Nodsu, please join!  I haven't been in a swap with you in ages!

I forgot to mention this in my questionnaire:  Whoever gets me, in addition to the drinks I mentioned that I like, I also like 'Maxwell House Suisse Mocha Cafe' beverage mix (that's what the box says).  It comes in a rectangular box with rounded edges and a red top.

 Cheesy

Thanks for the follow-up message, Whistlefish. I'm in the middle of several time-consuming projects right now, but I should know my ability to follow through with this in a few days. If I have enough time, I'd still like to join.
