    I am making mug rugs and as I give them away, many people have never heard of them. I'm trying to come up with a little poem or saying that explains what they are that I can include. Have any of you found one, writen one or are creative and can think of something?

    I am a little rug
    not for your floor,
    not for your head
    I will hold your mug

    Tea or coffee you chug?
    Then you need a mug rug!

    I'm a little mug rug,
    to hold your cup of joe.
    And if I get a spot or two,
    In the washer I can go.


    A place for everything,
    and each thing in its place:
    A rug for your mug
    gives you style and grace.

    Set your mug upon me
    and when you are through,
    I'll still look adorable
    and your table will look new.

    I'm a lonely mug rug
    and wish I had a brother.
    Be nice to ncsewer,
    and she might make another.

    My mug rug poem

    I could have made a bigger quilt,
    I'm ready (and I'm able)

    But instead I made this tiny quilt
    to save your lovely table

    So when you're drinking something hot
    and want to rest your mug

    Remember that your special cup
    now has its own sweet rug

    I'm still laughing about your poem Ditter! :lol:

    These are all really cute poems! It would be fun to continue this collection of mug rug poetry in ncsewer's topic! We could include all them with our mug rugs when we give them as gifts, kind of like fortune cookies!

    A couple of us here in my family had these additions:

    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

    Is it a quilt for an elf, to cover herself?
    Would it help keep a frog warm under a log?
    Did someone get drunk and this quilt, she shrunk?
    Just give me time to think! Here, let me rest my drink.

    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

    There does not seem to be very much of me.
    But I'm a good place, you’ll see,
    To rest your cuppa tea.

    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~

    I know I've made a lot of rings
    With my wet drinks on all your things
    So to make amends and ease my guilt
    I'm giving you this little quilt.

    ~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~*~
