    I'm making mug rugs, and love it. However, when I give them, people study them for a minute and then ask if it is a really small placemat! So, I'm thinking..."dammit dolls" have a little peom explaining their usefulness, so why not Mug Rugs...does anyone know of such a thing? (If not, maybe we should all pool our smarts and come up with one!)

    Just off the top of my head:

    Hope you enjoy this little rug.
    It's meant to fit a cup or a mug.
    So when you're having your coffe or tea,
    I hope you'll smile and think of me.

    Really, before joining this forum, I had never heard of a Mug Rug either!! Has anyone else?
    Place mats, yes, Mug Rugs no, even though it's a good idea, especially since I have a glass table.

    No, I had never heard of a mug rug, either! But I like them and the little poem Carol wrote sounds good to me.

    I gave mug rugs as individual gifts at a ladies luncheon I hosted on May. Yup - everyone looked at them like "Huh?". Even though I placed them on the beverage table & had a beverage glass sitting on each one. I tried explaining what they were & kept getting the Huh? look - so I finally said they were coasters on steroids. Huh? to Aha! in seconds. So much for class & finesse.

    They might understand 'washable coaster'.
    Mug Rug is much nicer than a folded washcloth.

    Have to say I do make mine more like a coaster. Square in shape so no doubt what it is for :)

    I love this! I've never made a mug rug and really never wanted to but now I want to make some just to use this poem! Thanks for adding to my to do list!

    Carol's Quilts, You are a genius!!!
    I love the poem, and will give credit where it is due...I'll include a little "cq" at the end whenever I give it with a mug rug! Thank you!!
    For those that haven't tried making these little gifts, DO!!! They are fun, quick, and always appreciated. I make mine using leftover or orphan blocks, or to try out a new pattern. Then I match them with an inexpensive mug...Instant Gift!

    I have a question: why is the mug rug larger than a coaster? They don't seem to be large enough for a mug and a desert plate.

    I first heard of them from my weaver sister--she made quite a few for her weaving shop back in the early 90's. I think the woven ones preceded the quilted ones, but am not sure.
