I must confess I have never heard of a mug rug before, but as many of us sue mugs instead of cups and saucers, this certainly seems like a practical solution to avoiding unsightly ring marks on you furniture. The mug rug is described as a large coaster with room for your favourite mug and biscuit or two. These projects are small enough to complete in a few hours, but large enough to expand your creativity and get to grips with a new technique you haven't tried before. There are 22 different designs by various artists and all have clear instructions and templates where applicable. These projects would make a quick but personalised gift for a friend or a quick make for your next quilting fair.* Fabrications *
