This mug rug is larger than a coaster and smaller than a placemat and perfect for a cup and snack to fit on. The project is a sewing project that can be sewn by hand or with a sewing machine and is a great project to learn the basics of quilt blanket piecing and stitching on a small scale. There are four five-inch squares with a tactile guide around the perimeters to enable stitching by touch. Once the four five-inch squares are stitched together with a running stitch they are then sewn face to face with the backing and batting, leaving a small opening to turn the project right side out. Once turned right side out the opening will be sewn shut with a small whip stitch.
The kit comes pre-cut and pre-assembled ready for stitching together! All you need are your sewing notions – needle, thread, scissors, and optional needle threader.
