It Can be a Mug Rug, Pot Holder and More!

A charming gnome stars in this festive mug rug. It will be a fun holiday accent just about anywhere. Choose leftovers from your stash and don’t be surprised if you find yourself making more than one.

The quilt block could also become a pot holder. Add a 1″ border around the block and a hanging loop to make an 8″ potholder. Don’t forget to use Insul-Bright batting for heat-proofing.

Gnome Mug Rug Pattern

Julie Cefalu, from The Crafty Quilter, created the mug rug by reducing the size of the original block by Caroline from Sew Can She.

The finished mug rug is 6 1/2″ square.

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!

PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
