    Lighthouse Mug Rugs

    I made these mug rugs for our RV. They are a bit larger than usual due to the size of the lighthouses. I used a layer of Insulbrite in between the two layers of fabrics. I changed the binding from a simple solid red to the red/white stripe which really jazzed them up..and also mimics stripes on the lighthouses.

    I love them. I have a friend that collects anything with lighthouses, and he'd love to get his hands on these. They're wonderful. Thanks for posting.
