From baking to knitting, gardening to movie watching - hobbies are important for escaping the busyness of life. If quilting, sewing and stitching are your hobby of choice then join with the Patchsmith and escape the hustle-and-bustle of life for an hour or two. That is all the time it takes to create a unique, handmade mug rug.
Mug rugs are functional mini quilts that provide the perfect resting place for a cup and a cookie. Slightly bigger than a coaster yet smaller than a placemat, a mug rug will brighten any table or desk. Using little more than scraps of fabric these delightful projects are fun to make for your home and small enough to make as a gift for someone special.
Within the pages of this book you will find ten mug rug designs themed around hobbies and fun pastimes. The designs include:
(Some of you may recognise the 'Jigsaw', 'Sewing Machine' and 'Reading' patterns from my Craftsy shop. Even if you have already purchased these patterns you will still be getting excellent value for money with another seven new designs included in this book.)
The booklet includes hints and tips for new mug rug makers together with a 'beginners' coaster pattern. Each pattern uses quick fuse applique and/or simple patchwork and each design is presented as a stand-alone pattern, enabling you to print just the pattern you are working on, saving you ink and paper. The easy-to-follow instructions, colour diagrams and full size appliqu sheets will guide you as you make these functional mini quilts.
So join the Patchsmith today and patch a life of fabric, fun and friends.

I am the Patchsmith. I patch, applique, sew and quilt. I have been creating a life of fabric, fun and friends for many, many years. I believe a pattern should be easy to follow, with clear diagrams and full-size templates. Value is also very important to me - both in terms of fabric wastage and to the buyer. Patchwork is about sharing and that is why all my patterns are priced for everybody to afford.
