Product Description

Product Description

Sewing is popular with all ages and this series, Love to Sew, focuses on the latest hot trends. The 64 page handy square format gives us room for at least twenty projects, each with simple step-by-step instructions, beautiful photographs, as well as a basic techniques and materials section at the front of the book. Practical yet pretty, a mug rug is one of the latest trends on the sewing and patchwork scene. Basically it is a large coaster with room for your favourite mug and a biscuit or two. Small enough to complete in a few hours, but large enough to give space to your creativity, a mug rug is an ideal project for trying out some new techniques or even for getting to grips with patchwork, quilting or applique for the first time. This book contains a selection of mug rugs designed by renowned international patchwork artists. Revel in the many different designs that can be achieved with various fabrics and techniques and, above all, have fun making your own mug rug.

Review

Christa has collected together designs from various artists to present 22 different mug rugs - smaller than a placemat but larger than a coaster. Materials and techniques are fully explained and the book contains all templates and full detailed instructions. A fun book to appeal to all ages and abilities.-East Kent Embroiderer's Guild Not a placemat nor a coaster, the mug rug is just right for you cup of tea or coffee and a couple of biscuits or a spoon. These perfect sized mats will surely find a place in your home. 22 designs are featured each with easy to follow instructions and good photography. All templates are provided and basic techniques are given. The mats have been designed by various artists using quilting and applique techniques. I'm sure you'll find plenty you love. I particularly like Nostalgic Charm and Good Morning by Renate Bieber, Cathedral Windows by Verena Surerus and Pretty in Pink by Sabine Gunther as well as the Pocket Rug by Kerstin Porsch. A lovely book with new ideas and ideal for gift making.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts I must confess I have never heard of a mug rug before, but as many of us sue mugs instead of cups and saucers, this certainly seems like a practical solution to avoiding unsightly ring marks on you furniture. The mug rug is described as a large coaster with room for your favourite mug and biscuit or two. These projects are small enough to complete in a few hours, but large enough to expand your creativity and get to grips with a new technique you haven't tried before. There are 22 different designs by various artists and all have clear instructions and templates where applicable. These projects would make a quick but personalised gift for a friend or a quick make for your next quilting fair.-Fabrications

Attractive and worthwhile. The projects are inspiring, the techniques clearly explained and you really feel you could manage the ideas in the book and design your own. This book should suit reasonable beginners and the more experienced. One craft book that didn't disappoint.

Full of great ideas, so refreshingly different from the usual and will use up surplus fabric, (not that there is such a thing!)
arrived quicker than expected and as always well packaged
Well worth the money for the ideas it has inspired

A really clever little book. I have never heard of a 'mug rug' until I found this book on Amazon. Compact in size but full of ideas that can easily be adapted with different motifs. The freezer paper mentioned in the book is available from Hobbycraft as is the adhesive spray glue .... an absolute MUST have for any crafty-crafter, especially if you enjoy applique but hate the fiddly bits.

Clear instructions and I've used several of the rugs stitched together and used them as panels for a larger bed throw. Perfect for using all those tiny pieces of fabric too small to use on large projects but just too pretty to throw away!

A lady at my sewing group brought this in and after leafing through, I just had to have my own copy. It's perfect for making these straight from the book or as inspiration to make up your own. I personally don't buy many craft books as I think most of the designs are too simple but I'm glad I got this one, it's well worth buying - at under £3 a bargain, less than the cost of a box of chocs and a lot less calories!

I found this book very nice, it was explained well and the projects looked lovely when finished. I would recommend this book to anyone who is looking for something small to make.
