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. I gathered up 11 of my awesome sewing friends to give you new & original tutorials on all sorts of Mug Rugs ranging from simple & quick to some using more advanced techniques! See below for all the links from Mug Rug madness and visit the different blogs to see the tutorials!
