Welcome back for the third day of our Mug Rug Blog Hop!
We hope you enjoy the tutorial below, part of a Hostess Gift Set designed by Stitched Together Studios using the Shaken or Stirred fabric collection. Make sure you read to the end of the post to find out how to enter for a chance to win a fat quarter bundle of fabric!
The "Mad Men"-inspired prints from Maria Kalinowski's Shaken or Stirred collection from Kanvas were just begging to be made into hostess accessories!
You can uses these cool mug rug coasters for mugs, of course, or upgrade to a beverage that coordinates with the fabric theme. :)
- 1/4 yard each 4 prints (tossed martini glasses on red and black, and olives on black and green)
- Four 6-1/2" squares batting
From each print, cut six 6-1/2" squares.
Think this mug rug looks like a simple four-patch? Think again! The design is still simple, but it features a neat folding trick that you'll want to use again and again.
Download and print out the rest of the directions here. You'll also find free patterns to make trivets (which can also double as larger mug rugs!), wine gift bags, and an apron. Perfect timing with the Super Bowl right around the corner!
