This mug rug idea is one of the most ingenious things I have ever seen. The name itself, “mug rug”, caught my eye while I was browsing YouTube and found this excellent rug mug video tutorial by Erica Arndt, describing this new rug mug idea as an alternative to a coaster. The rug mug is like a coaster, but a lot bigger and makes a perfect spot to set your coffee or tea and still have room for a little snack, so clever! The rug mug is made using the super-easy quilt-as-you-go method, where you sew your quilt block pattern to the batting and backing all in one go. This quilt-as-you-go method is so fun and super easy for beginners. This rug mug idea is also an excellent scrap buster, but you can use anything, even a completely solid color. This mug rug makes an excellent option for family snacks and really brightens up the kitchen as well.
In this excellent rug mug video tutorial by Erica Arndt, you will learn how to make this project in a step by step, easy to understand method. You start by cutting your fabric pieces.
At the end, you will add your bias tape to give the project a finished look.
This is a super project, I just love it!
