Quick and easy, make a mug rug from a charm pack for your cup of coffee or tea, as well as a wine coaster where everyone can keep track of whose is whose! These are sometimes referred to as a wine glass slipper (or wine cozy) because the base of the wine glass just slips in the fabric, which makes it stay with your wine glass where ever you take it! No more losing which wine glass is yours! I love that these double as a mug rug – colorful rugs for your coffee or tea cup!
These mug rug / coasters are so easy and perfect gifts — just pick fabric patterns and colors especially for the receiver! One charm pack makes seven (7) coasters. Also, these are a super quick and easy project – perfect for beginners.
The finished wine coaster. I love how the wine glasses just tuck into the fabric. You’ll know which wine glass is yours!
Bonus! These wine coaster / mug rugs are washable and environmentally friendly! Reduce waste (and your fabric stash) by making these instead of using paper napkins.
Don’t have charm packs lying around? Cut 5-inch squares of fabric from your fabric scraps. Each wine coaster / mug rug uses five (5) 5-inch squares of fabric. Need them larger? or smaller? Cut larger or smaller squares. Don’t forget – the finished coaster / mug rug will be 1/2-inch smaller than the cut squares due to seam allowances. This is a perfect stash-buster fabric.
