20+ Mug Rug and Coaster Sewing Patterns

Years ago my husband's family started a fun tradition we called Sister's Day.  Each of the sisters and sister in laws would create or purchase a gift for each other.  

We'd try to all get together and exchange them.  It was fun to see what everyone put together but it was also fun to put the project together.  

Great list of over 20 free mug rug patterns and a few coaster sewing patterns for those warm drinks.

This year I wanted to put together a mug rug for each of the sisters.  I did a LOT of research before I designed my own mug rug patterns.  

But today I wanted to share with you many of the projects I had come across and some others from great blogger friends.

I hope you enjoy these fun mug rug patterns!

  1. Hi,

    What are the demitions for a mug rug?

    1. There isn't really a set dimension. Each pattern is a little different. My finished mug rugs are typically 5.5 x 9"


I'd love to hear from you!
