Mug Rugs!!!


I received a custom order for a large number of mug rugs.  So I quickly got to work and have been busy pulling fabrics and playing with different combinations.  Mug rugs are a great way to test out fabric combinations before using them in larger projects.

More Flea Market Fancy!  I love the aqua, red and grey together.  I like to find fun fabrics that I can fussy cut like these large flower clusters which are great for mug rugs.

This process goes a whole lot quicker if you set up an assembly line.  Cut all the pieces for each one, sew up the tops, press the tops and backs, pin each one together, sew them up, add all the bindings, and you're all done!  Of course it is a little more time consuming than that, but you get the idea.

These are pinned up and ready for stitching.

I am not sure which one is my favorite.  It is a toss up between the two in the middle (green, grey and teal and the yellow, grey and soft blue).

More flower bundles... these are so pretty and are from the Millie's Closet collection.  

I am excited to see how all of these turn out.  Stay tuned for more.

You can also find the pattern to make these mug rugs here on my Etsy shop.

Here are previous mug rug posts:

Happy Sewing!


  1. I like the mugrugs, especially with the while in them, very fresh!

    are those cute pins iron safe? if so, where did you get them, if I may ask ;-)


    1. Thank you! I am not sure about the pins. I found them at Joann's and fell in love!

  2. How exciting! These look gorgeous! Go Girl!

  3. So fresh looking! They will be great when finished ; )

  4. They look great, but I kept getting distracted by the pretty pretty pins ;-)

  5. Those are so pretty! I need to get going on another mug rug!

  6. I had never even heard of a mug rug before this but I have to say "HOW CUTE!" I love the colors you have gone with so far and think this is just a super neat project. Can't wait to see more.

  7. Can't wait to see how they turn out. I love your fabric choices!

  8. Those will be beautiful mug rugs!

  9. Assembly line is definitely the way to go on projects likes this. I made a bunch of card holders a few weeks ago and it went so much faster that way. It was fun pulling out fabrics that went together.

  10. I'm really diggin the yellow/grey/blue/white one. Such an appealing colour combo that I'd never have thought of!

  11. Your mug rugs are beautiful, I just made my 1st mug rug tonight, but stopped at adding the binding! what is it about sewing binding? Hopefully I will finish it soon.

  12. Those are great - I like all the fabric combinations you put together.

  13. Do you have a mug rug pattern?
