They’re Great Gifts, Too!

This charming little round mug mat is so simple to make. You can have several done in just a few hours, making it perfect for last-minute gifts.

Dig through your stash for leftover 10″ layer cake squares. Matching rick rack is a pretty finishing touch, or leave if off if you prefer.

The 10″ squares are folded and layered, creating pockets for treats and such. Insert a special treat and wrap it up for a cute hostess, girlfriend or other gift.

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!
