Selvage Mug Rug

Until recently the term "mug rug" was new to me. The term says it all very succinctly. It is a fabric coaster for your coffee or tea mug and it among the latest ideas on the crafty front.

This one was recently sent to me by a swapper who realizes that I like She using selvages in quilted items. It is a bit larger than what I understand is normal for mug rugs -- about 4x6. She added a pocket to hold a spoon a napkin -- could hold extra teabags for tea drinkers. I think it's clever and almost to pretty to use as a mug rug for fear of coffee dripping on it. For now it's joined other small quilted things on my design wall.
