How to Make a Quilted Mug Rug

Every year I have a Christmas project. I create something that I give to several of my friends. Since everybody's been just home I thought it would be nice to make mug rugs for my friends. I made about 30 sets of mug rugs and made it really colorful. Here's a video on how I made it -


7 fabric (pink, red, orange, yellow, green, blue, violet)

fabric for binding

embroidery thread

quilting thread

sewing machine or you can opt to do everything by hand

card board to make cupcake or butterfly template

Here's the step by step process:

(1) Cut fabric and wadding -

1.5" wide x 7 fabric colors to make a rainbow

6.5" x 6.5" square fabric 

12" x 6.5" backing fabric

12" x 6.5" wadding

(2) Combine fabric

(3) Sandwich fabric with wadding

(3) Quilt! 

(4) Create cupcake or butterfly template

(5) Embroider cupcake or butterfly. Add a cute iron on heart too if you want. 

(6) Create binding

(7) Bind your quilt!
