Add Your Team Colors to Make This Quilt Uniquely Yours!

If you’ve been searching for a gift for the football fans in your life, look no further. This delightful pigskin mug rug is just the thing. Plus, it’s a quick and easy project, meaning you can make several in a weekend.

A pigskin mug rug made by you is already special, but add their team colors to make it truly shine. It’s easy to find team letters online to print and use as a pattern for fusible applique.

I quickly superimposed my team’s block M on the mug rug photo so you can see how it might look. Every fan I know would love to find this in their Christmas stocking!


You could also cut a team logo from a fabric panel or other team fabric and applique it onto the football. You might make the binding in team colors, as well.

The mug rug measures 6″ x 10″ but could easily be enlarged for a wall hanging (find easy instructions here).

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!
