Scrappy Projects - Mug Rugs

It always seems I am late to the game...these mug rugs were all the rage a while ago, but I just couldn't get on board.  Don't anyone shoot me, but they seemed a little pointless to me....until I made one, that is!  I just moved to a new office building at work and I am in love with my new space.  It's brand spankin new, clean, open, windows galore, located in the heart of downtown (a little scary, btw!).  Anyway, I wanted to do something to dress up my new digs but I don't have enough wall space for a wall hanging.  Enter the mug rug!

I have a huge tupperwear of scraps, so I just started sewing these babies together.  They come together so fast, too!  I totally see the instant gratification factor here!

This is also a great way to practice free motion quilting.  I did pebbles on one and my go-to swirls on the other, but plan to try some new techniques as I make more of these.  Pair these with a travel mug, or a Starbucks' gift card and you've got a great gift!


  1. Very cute mugrugs. I made 3 last year and the recipients loved them ; )

  2. the prefect way to practice fmq also right?!

  3. Love your mug rugs! I'm about to sew my first ones for Valentines for friends!
