|3.5 inch Mug Rug|
There are a few magazine and newsletters that send me emails and every so often there is a free pattern or free ebook offer. Quilting Daily had an excellent pattern (click on "pattern") that you may be interested in for a quick and simple gift. It is called a "Mug Rug" and I had such a good time with it I made a dozen of them to start and sold four that afternoon. Though the pattern calls for 3.5 inch squares, I used the remnants of a jelly roll, so mine were made with 2.5 inch squares. Then I branched out and tried using some left over Charm Pack squares of 5 inches. That seems to be a good size for a teapot, sugar and creamer. Matching mug rugs would complete the set. Finally, today I made one of the called for dimensions. This really is a better size, I think. None of mine have the matching mug marker. People I drink tea with have to be responsible to keep up with their mug on their own! Let me know what you think of the pattern. Enjoy!
