I just LOVE Mug Rugs. Sure ... they are nothing more than a simple little quilt in an adorable teensy size, but sometimes you just need a small and easy project to get finished quickly, ya know? Plus, I've found that they make great gifts - because who can't use a little extra potholder / cup holder / snack mat / Diet Coke rest on their desk or nightstand?
In March 2011 I held the Mug Rug Madness event. Read all about our first event here.
Now we're having a holiday edition that's all about getting you ready and in the mood for Christmastime & all the winter holidays. Mug Rugs are the perfect little project to whip up for a stocking stuffer or teacher gift - and if you start sewing with us now in September, you might get some gifts done ahead of the December sewing crunch! Join us from September 12th - 22nd, 2011 for 10 days of Mug Rug tips, tutorials and of course, prizes!
