They Make Lovely Gifts Too!

These cute fabric mugs are both decorative and functional. They’re sturdy enough for everyday use, beautiful enough for gift-giving, and can be used to store just about anything, both in the sewing room and around the house.

Once you’ve made one or two and understand how they go together you can easily adjust the size. A supersized mug will be a fun way to store fabric and even small quilts.

Plus, they go together quickly for experienced quilters. And you can spot-clean them or even hand wash them if they start to look a little grubby.

Batting or fusible fleece and light or medium-weight double-sided interfacing allow the mugs to retain their shapes.

Designer Petro provides instructions for mugs of the following approximate sizes:

  • Large – 7.5″ tall x 5″ across
  • Medium – 5.5″ tall x 3.75″ across
  • Small – 4.25″ tall x 4″ across

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!
