    After re-reading some of your post and measuring I find the 9X7 is a decent size to work with.

    If you go and re-read the guide lines for this swap it stated:
    . *SIZE: A minimum of approx. 9” x 7” in any fashion or shape.

    As I said before…PLEASE do not stress over this. I am hoping for this swap to be challenging, fun & making new friends.

    I love all the photos of the rugs so far..Too bad I cannot have them all

    I'm thinking that I'm going to have to measure tlhe little spot at work where mine will live. I have room for 2 drinks there, but I believe a small plate wouldn't fit. I need a mini tape measure, lol. A larger one would work on my sewing table though. I can't remember what size I made the bunch at Christmas. I do still have a piece of flannel leftover where I cut too many batting pieces though. I like flannel for mug rug batting because it catches moisture, but dries well without smelling funny.

    As for my partner's, I can't decide what to do, but I have a couple theme directions I'd like to go in.

    ok did anyone here know that the word "MUG RUG" is has a patton? the man who invented them had worked at a coffee shop and all the spills and wasted napkins bugged him. he has these rubber COASTERS that are absorbant and washable so you need less napkins. His are coaster size. Didnt know it was actually a word licensed to someone. So we can call them I think anything we want. its a boring fact yawn. like snack mats better myself. and that snack looked mighty good belfry. I have pretty little salad size dessert plates I love to have my snacks on. flowers lady like love em. and pink and white polka dot mugs to have my coffee in. all girly stuff. my house is manly man snake skins, antlers, rocks wood carvings lots of guy stuff. I fix it up with holiday goodies. and a few pieces of .. girly stuff
