Boxed Mug Rug Gift Set

The idea for this fabric box came from this site.

Of course, I changed it up a bit. Made it larger and rectangular instead of square. Also loaded up on Pellon to make it sturdier. I ironed on interfacing on top and bottom and also sewed in a piece of really heavy Pellon on the bottom.

And added a removable carrying handle. I LOVE the SnapSetter. So easy to use. A few pounds with the hammer and the snaps attach quickly and smoothly. It is one of my favorite gadgets.

The mug rugs, four of them, fit inside the box.

I made them with 2″ squares. Quilting was simple diagonal lines.

I am just about finished with a second set. Just need to tack the sides down to the fabric box and add the handle.

They were easy to make. Just time consuming. A lot of pressing. And my ironing board is in another room. Lots of walking.

I am going to make several more sets. Getting things together for my Christmas craft shows. Will make perfect gifts.

      Thank you, Michelle!!

      I am working on a set using the colors in a coffee mug as my inspiration. Once I have the right shade of blue, I’ll get started.
