    funny I just found this post this morning reading emails. yesterday I made my first mug rug and was so frustrated with the binding that I just threw it aside and shut everything down and took a nap. maybe today after work I will attempt it again.
    I guess I cannot get out of hand sewing the binding?

    I went back and saw that on the mug rug she used a single fabric, but the same technique...single is actually just fine for a mug rug as it will not get much wear...you can actually just do a FAUX binding on the mug rugs though...

    that is making your back larger than the front and just folding it over the front and then top stitching it down.
