This Can be a Pot Holder, Too!
Create a simple, sweet and completely charming mug rug with scraps from your stash. This is a great pattern for an easy project that finishes quickly, making it wonderful for last minute gifts.
The mug rug can easily become a pot holder simply by adding Insul-Bright batting and a bit of ribbon or cord for hanging. Simply fold the ribbon and stitch both ends into the seam when adding the backing.
Simple patchwork gives you plenty of color options. Choose an array of fabrics in colors and patterns you love together. Every mug rug or pot holder can be completely different and have its own personality.
The tutorial, from Candace at Saltwater Quilts, is for a mug rug that finishes at 9 1/2″ x 9 1/2″, including the ruffle.
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!
