April Mug Rug Hop Day 1: "April Showers"... & a giveaway!

10:59:00 PM



Hi all!

In the month of April, when the rain is falling, what better to make than a mug rug?

And for those who don't know what a 'mug rug' is: it's something to set your drink on, bigger than a coaster and smaller than a place mat.

With me so far? :)

I made my Rug a little bigger than the usual - it's about 8" x 10"...because, if you know me, I'm always double fisting - a water and _______ (insert beverage here) ______. Plus, if you're having a bit of a treat with your bevvies, you need a little extra room!

Enjoy your cuppa (tea!) and since your Rug is nice and big, add a couple of cookies and a glass of water, too.

(and because I miss my Timmy's coffee...a little taste of Canadiana:)

I like how it turned out! Looks pretty good on my side-table :)

What are you doing this rainy April day?------------------------------GIVEAWAY CLOSED---------------------------------------

  4. What a wonderful project and a great giveaway!! I have only made one mug rug (for the Zakka Style Sew Along). I don't drink coffee, so it has ended up beside my sewing machine to corral all the sharp objects I throw around. I was scratching the surface (it was already pretty rough), but that problem is now solved!

  5. Thanks, Erin, for cheering this big beautiful blog hop for us ... and for starting us off on such a great note! Your mug rug is sew cute. Thanks for telling how you did the reverse applique. Yes, I have made quite a few mug rugs before this hop. They are sew easy and fun to make that I always have a tough time stopping at just one. Thanks, also to you and Linh for the chance to win this fabulous fabric ... :) Pat

But the light is here and wonderful days are coming. The wild birds are intoxicated of joy and are singing loud.

    Before I joined this bloghop I made 3 mug rugs, two for dear friends and one for myself, I use it everyday, sitting at my computer I have a place for my mug, I use it everyday, so it is a item well used.

    Congrats on being a cheerleader.

  157. Your mug rug is perfect for spring. I have never made a mug rug. I really should since I drink endless cups of tea during the day and wind up leaving the mugs all over the house. Maybe, if I had a mug rug I would return them to where they belong.
