Pattern Description:

Looking for something quick and simple? Well this project is pretty and practical too! You can easily have a set of mug rugs (coasters) made over a few evenings a week, enjoying a bit of peaceful sewing in front of the tv, or anywhere you fancy - it's the ultimate portable project that fits in your bag without a fuss!

If you've ever felt daunted by hand sewing, this project will have you hooked; it's an ideal introduction to English Paper Piecing for the beginner, takes less than a fat quarter's worth of fabric, and won't take you years to make! The pattern includes templates at the right size, detailed instructions, diagrams and links to my online sewing tutorials. So what are you waiting for - download and get sewing today!

  • Matching sewing and hand quilting thread
  • Sewing needles (I prefer Crewels)
