    Mug Rugs

    Is there a specific size for mug rugs? If not, what sizes do you make or what is the most common size?
    Thanks!

    Most commonly rectangular, from 4" x 6" to 6" x 10" or so, but you could do square or circular or hexagonal or octagonal, whatever works for you.

    Just whatever you like unless you are in a swap. You can use coaster size, some people like them 6/10 so they can rest their cup and treat both on them.

    Final size is up to you. Do you have a treat also? Perhaps about 6x8 to 8x10, or somewhere around that.

    I have made MANY. I kind of winged it but they ended up being big enough to set 2 mugs on or a mug and a snack. Seems to work ok, everyone loves them.
