This particular mug rug pattern posting linked to a bloggers site, and the mug rug is made of fabric selvages. I thought; I have fabric selvages, I can do this.
So, here is a pic. of my Mug Rug in the making:
And the next pic is my mug rug finished. It took about an hour from start to finish. Including hand sewing on the binding.
O.K. it's cute in a way if you like selvage sewing projects, it's square or pretty close to it---to me it looks like a potholder? A mini quilt maybe. --- I've put the teacup and saucer in the picture so you could see what I think it's supposed to be used for---maybe? I wouldn't use it as a coaster. Aren't coasters smaller? It's not quite a coaster, it's too large, and if I had a drippy coffee mug, it would be staining those nice white collectible selvages I used..... It's not quite a potholder, although that would make it more useful wouldn't it? Maybe it's a hot pad?? a tiny table topper?
I don't get it I guess----So, now I've satisfied my curiosity about making what they call a "mug rug". (No, I won't be making more----) Have you made a mug rug, and what do you use it for?
