    I fused Pelon 987 to the backside of each layer, it gives a stiffer look and feel to the finished rugs.

    A mug rug is kind of a large coaster, big enough for a mug of coffee or cocoa and a snack. If you do a search, you will see a lot of really nice ones, like mini-mini quilts.

    What ever suits you. Bits of leftover fleece is fine. There is a thermal fabric you can buy for pots holders and stuff that works.

    I use a layer of scrap batting and a layer of thinsulate in mine. I wanted to make sure my tables were protected from heat as well as spills.

    If you follow this link it will lead you to numerous postings and photos all about mug rugs. HTH
