Tea and Books Mug Rug

from The Patchsmith
(7) Name: 'Quilting : Tea and Books Mug Rug
Tea and Books Mug Rug
Tea and Books Mug Rug
Tea and Books Mug Rug

Pattern Description:


There is nothing nicer than to curl up with a good book and a hot drink. And now, with this whimsical design from the Patchsmith, you can have the perfect resting place for your cup and cookie. Or maybe you know a book-lover or teacher who would enjoy a little piece of fabric art on their table.

Using scraps of fabric and selvage edges that are normally thrown away, this 'waste not - want not' mug rug is economical to make as well as functional. Have fun choosing which selvage prints you want on your bookshelf - once you start looking you will be surprised at the vast array of names and titles to choose from. In fact, you may spend more time choosing your book titles than you do creating this delightful mug rug.

The 'Tea and Books' design combines quick-fuse applique with simple patchwork and, like all Patchsmith patterns, comes with easy-to-follow instructions, full size applique sheet and colour diagrams.

So add this 'page-turner' of a pattern to your library today.
