    The tag doesn't show up very well, but gives you an idea of what I do with them.

    Thanks for the sizing!

    Think of it as the Mug Rugs being a good way to learn to do binding ... I used to hate it, and now find it quite relaxing and a nice change of pace. After all it's the "crowning glory" of the quilt!

    Hehe. Probably me. I certainly drank that Kool-Aid.

    that is too cute. I just made one for my daughter for her hospital trip. She likes it. Makes her feel more like at home.

    I have made several mug rugs, and a couple of them I just used the sew and turn right side out technique. No binding, quilted a quarter inch or so inside the edge. It looks fine and skips the whole binding thing. Just have to hand stitch the opening closed...... Just an idea to try.

    This is the way I do it too. I'm not good at bias tape. I made several for Christmas gifts with a note as to what they were. The non-sewers look at you kind of funny until they find out what to do with them. They are sooo fun to make.

    I loved your tag and thought you did a great job on this mug rug. Once you do the binding thing a few times, it will be easy. It is like making a pie...do it every day for two weeks ... and you can do it for life.

    Or, you could forget the binding, stitch a bit from the edge, clip like a rag quilt, and have a fuzzy chenille edge.
