What is a mug rug? Well it’s pretty much just a giant coaster. But I have come to prefer them over a regular coaster. They are on average 6 by 8 inches in size and being bigger, they protect furniture better in my eyes. A mug rug fits both your drink and snack or whatever you want, where as a coaster if for a drink only.
I also like that you can make all sorts of different patterns of mug rugs; they are easy and fun to make, and so versatile to use! You don’t have to use them for food and drinks, they can be for a nice candle or small flower vase… anything!
