Fact: snacks taste better when served on a handcrafted mug rug. Or at least, that's how you'll feel once you stitch these cute coasters and mug rugs.
If there's one party rule we follow, it's to never underestimate the power of handcrafted coasters. They're perfect for using scraps, they stitch up in a flash and the customization opportunities are endless — making 'em conversation starters for your next get-together. And if hosting isn't your thing, DIY coasters just so happen to be a functional and fun quick-stitch gift any host or hostess would love.
Don't throw out those selvages! Save 'em from your fabric so you can transform them into a scrappy mug rug that commemorates your crafts.

Mug rugs may not grow on trees, but they can come out of fabric scraps. This quick and easy project is perfect for summer or fall, and — bonus! — makes an A+ gift for any teacher.

Whether there's a drawer in your kitchen dedicated to mug rugs or you've never made a single one, this folded flying geese design is a must-have. Not only is it beginner-friendly, but it's a great project for practicing a ton of techniques: making folded flying geese, sewing partial seams and using a pillowcase binding. Oh, and guess what? It can be made completely with charm squares!
