    A few days ago I saw a post on here about mug rugs.....our oldest son's Birthday was yesterday.....so I made him one...I am going to get him another mug or glass...since he is more of a Mt Dew drinker than coffee.....I made his a little larger..that way he can also put a sandwich plate on it too.......I hope he likes it....

    that is so cute. I seen the other mug rug on the board. That would make a cute christmas gift to make a mug rug and give them a new mug too. I think I might be doing that for christmas presents this year.

    Very nice. He will love it. Like the idea of making it larger to put a sandwich plate on it.

    What a cute idea. I haven't seen that idea before. I think I'll have to try some. At Christmas my family(I have a large family)we make gifts that are none person specific and put them in a gift box. Family members choose their gifts. With a coffee, tea, hot chocolate drinking family I think these would be a big hit.

    That's a neat idea, bopeep! That would be good for kids, too. Kind of like a mini placemat.
