Here are the other two mug rugs I promised you. The first one below is the third mug rug for my grandmother. If you missed the post about the first two, visit here. If you are unfamiliar with mug rugs, they are basically a large coaster for a beverage and a snack. They come in pretty handy at the sewing table. These measure 8.5" by 5.5".
Binding - Dumb Dot in Haze by Michael Miller
I ordered a Cool Scrap Pack from Hawthorne Threads and this fabric was included. In a scrap pack there is a total of 2 yards (12 oz.) of an assortment of designer fabrics in various sizes. They sent me some really great fabrics, all of really great quality. I was impressed with the selection and need to go back and order the Fresh Scrap Pack.
Now my hubby wanted one as well for his desk at work. I was pretty surprised when he asked for one, but flattered. So I made one that is right up his alley...

Robert Kaufman Kona Cotton solids in Charcoal and Navy
Gridlock in Navy by Dear Stella
I chose these fabrics because he loves grey and navy and the solids suit his personality. I used light grey thread to compliment the fabrics.

I really enjoyed making these. Mug rugs are a fun, quick project that reward you with instant gratification. They are also a great way to play with fabric combinations before you work with them on a larger project.
One last look at the other two I made for my grandmother.
I am so excited to hear what she thinks of these when she receives them in the mail.
**New update: To make your own mug rugs you can find a pattern for these designs and other variations listed in my shop here - Bundle of Mug Rugs.
