Mug rugs are a great way to use up left over scraps from another project and make great gifts. I make mine in various sizes and this one is about 7.5 inches by 9 inches. Do you remember this project and tutorial?
My little scraps were only a little over 1 inch wide so I cut them into 2.5 inch strips and simply pieced them together and added a couple 1.25″ strips of red.
The beautiful red fat quarter was one that I had already used quite a bit of so I was short for the binding and just added some black. I know I should have cut it into strips of equal size but this is just for me and I can definitely say it is an “original pattern” 🙂
