Pin Cushion and Mug Rug Swaps

We held our first hand-made item swap last Monday - we swapped Pincushions!
We had a wide variety of styles and fibers - it was great and everybody was thrilled with the cushion they received!

Our next swap will be Mug Rugs!  What's a mug rug, you ask?  It's larger than a fabric coaster - the thought is that it you can place a mug of your favorite beverage on it and have room for a snack, too!  I went looking for inspiration to show you, and found tons of examples on Flickr as well as Pinterest.
1. 85.365, 2. My Mug Rug, 3. Pretty Rug/Happy Mug, 4. A little mug rug ..., 5. dreamy mug rug, 6. a scrappy mug rug, 7. Mug Rug, 8. star mug rug, 9. mug rug swap 2

If you'd like to join us for the Mug Rug swap, you can call us and we'll put you on the list.  You can use any sewing method or style of your choosing; the only parameter is that it must be larger than 4"x4" and smaller than 10"x10".  Square, rectangle or round - your choice!

Our Swap Party will be held on Monday, April 9 at 6pm.  Even if you can't make it to the actual swap party, we'd be glad to swap on your behalf.  We'd love for you to add your creativity to our group!
