We will be swapping mug rugs.
Need a Pattern? Here is an easy one - [Scrappy Mug Rug Pattern](http://stashmanicure.blogspot.com/2010/11/mug-rug-of-scraps.html"Scrappy Mug Rug Pattern")
Not sure what a mug rug should look like? Get some inspiration! - Flickr Mug Rug Inspiration Photos

Each swapper will have one partner. Mug rugs should be large enough to fit a mug of coffee or hot chocolate and a little something to snack on (generally 8" x 9" or something like that, not too big but not too small either). They can be circular as well.

Theme for swap: Inspiration! Design a mug rug that will inspire creativity for the new year.

Fabric: Read your partners profile for inspiration. If everyone lists their likes/dislikes in their profile this will make mug rug designing much easier! Please make sure your profile is filled out. Things to include: color preferences, pattern preferences, things that inspire you, favorite fabric lines, etc.

Each package should include the following:

  1. A completed mug rug.
  2. One fat quarter from your stash.
  3. A photograph, card or picture that you find inspiring.

Minimum rating: 4.5. If you have never joined a swap before but wish to join please message me and let me know. Make sure your profile is filled out completely. I will angel for anyone that doesn't receive a package. Failing to send a package will receive negative feedback on your rating. Please only sign up if you know you are going to follow through with this swap.

What exactly is a mug rug? Is it like a place mat?

Would someone be interested in international private swap for Christmas mug rug,similar to this one in exchange for crocheted ornaments,bookmarks,coasters,embellishments...

@Luvspink - A mug rug is an oversized coaster for your mug or glass or cup and has room for a cookie on the side! It can be any shape or size, whatever suits you or your partner best. If you have a passion for fun little projects, this is one for you!

I changed the swap to one swap partner each since two might be a bit much in a month. :)

This is so cool! What a great idea. I have so many extra fabric scraps and batting. Tiny projects are a great way to use them up!

QuiltedMagnolia 12/13/2010 #

I'm excited about this project! Everyone please make sure you've filled out your profile so your swap partner knows what you really like!

I've done several swaps from independent sites, but am totally new to swap bot...and I can't seem to figure out how to get a message to go through. I'd love to play along...if I can figure this website out:)

How is everyone going? I plan to get started on mine today, I have a few ideas so we'll see which one pans out the best :D

amdewitt 01/13/2011 #

Mine is almost finished! I think I'm going to make a few more and put up for gifts. They are really neat!

QuiltedMagnolia 01/30/2011 #

I've e-mailed reminders to the final people left to send out their mug rugs. If you do not receive a mug rug by February 10th let me know and I will work on getting replacements made for you.

Being from outside the USA I waited a little longer for my swap to arrive.. It never did.. I won't be participating in further swaps.
