Watermelon Wooly Mug Rug

by Morgan | June 20, 2018

Even if you've never worked with wool, when you see these wool coasters (called Wooly Mug Rugs in this series) you will fall in love. Can't you see yourself sipping lemonade with guests while the sun shines down, placing your glass down on these beautiful wool coasters? Imagine all the love these will receive from your friends and family. They're perfect housewarming gifts, too.

These adorable mug rugs are part of a series that Tammy does on YouTube every month. She guides you through creating the design for each month and teaches you new hand-sewing and wool techniques to make the process go more smoothly. What's even better, though, is that the video comes with a FREE diagram so you can make this with wool you have laying around.

Now, if you want to make sure you get exactly what you see here (allowing for some tiny variations in color placements - it's hand-dyed wool, after all) then you should get the July Wooly Mug Rug Kit from the Shabby Fabrics website.
