Enjoying a little free sewing...

red floral print is from SWEETWATER favorite designers!

AUTHENTIC fabric for the back!

I just loved this little muggy rug...

  1. lucky #1..... Very sweet mug rugs, Lana

  2. Cute collection of mug rugs! I think what I like about mug rugs is that they can have any theme at all and it's not a huge project to finish. I like to make them for occasions...birthdays, whatever and mail them off with a card.

  3. I haven't made mug rugs, but I make lots of pot holders which would be a similar size. I like to take a simple paper pieced pattern and reduce the size to fit. I've done birds, apples, trees, cupcakes, and even words like "cook" or "eat". Such fun to make!

  4. Lovely mug rugs, Lana. Your farm ones are very cute. I have made a few for gifts. I would buy a mug and then make the rug to match.

  5. Nice mug rugs. To be honest...I haven't made one yet...ever! I must though because I always have a cup of tea at some point during the day. Oh the possiblilities, tea mug rugs - small, and quick - not words I am used to when describing my projects. Time to shake it up! Thanks for the inspiration. Hugs, ~Cori

  6. Sweetwater has made one of my very favorite fabric lines.... Sunkissed, just love it... your mug rugs are adorable. I don't have a favorite pattern, mug rugs are so fun to make how ever you want them. Using practice blocks are a great way of making mug rugs. Thanks for the fun giveaway.

  7. Love love love the mug rugs - especially the birdie one. I have thing for birds when I stitch. Have I made a mug rug? just one and I'm not sure if I have a photo of it but I shall go and look. It was called and came out exactly like that. It look me ages. But there are more I want to do that I have added to my wish list. Love your quilting. Patti xxx

  8. Cute mug rugs. I made a winter mug rug to use with my hot's a mitten.

  9. Very cute mug rugs! I've never made them as I don't drink coffee or tea but I could sure use them for guests! I think the one you made for your friend is my favorite!

  10. I've made a few mug rugs for Christmas presents. I really don't know why I don't do more of them. They are cute, easy and quick!

  11. Love the mug rugs! I have made a few, but the first ones I ever made are my favorites!

  12. I haven't made any mug rugs lately, it might be time again! Most of the ones I've made have just been scrappy, randomly pieced.

  13. I've never used a pattern to make my mug rugs - just whatever inspires me. I LOVE that rooster fabric you used. Great mug rugs.

  14. I have not made a mug rug but my favorite coasters are ones are the coiled fabric clothesline ones I made a few years ago.

  15. I have made one with a cup and tea bag. I have lived in the south most of my life and now in Texas and they do make the best sweet tea!

  16. I have never made a mug rug. Love yours.

  17. I have never made a mug rug. Love yours.

  18. I have a lot of favorite mug rugs that I have made... by The Patchsmith. Maybe the Spring Lambs and The Primitive Pumkin are surely in the tops!

  20. I've been making mug rugs to put into birthday cards for my nieces and nephews. I try to personalize each one.

  21. I've been making mug rugs to put into birthday cards for my nieces and nephews. I try to personalize each one.

  22. Lana I love, love, love that Farm Life fabric - I must find some! My sister has chickens and a garden and considers herself almost a farmer. A wannabe farmer sort of. I need that fabric! I love most every text fabric but that one is absolutely perfect. What cute mug rugs you've made! blessings, marlene
