So, I bought this fabric panel http://www.wilmingtonprints.com/our-fabrics/our-fabrics/spring-market-2017/believe-you-can/1897-54558-423 and thought it would make cute mug rugs instead of a fabric book.

I made two reversible mug rugs--with Peltex inserts to make it stiffer. They were super quick--I was in a hurry--but the next ones with have binding!

Very nice...did you use an in-the-hoop design to make them? I like the simple square of stitching.

Thanks, Grammie. No in-the-hoop this time--I just sewed around three sides, turned them right side out, slipped the Peltex inside, then folded in the open side and edge stitched around it all. I think it will look nicer with binding around the edges, so I'll try that for the next one.

So nice, I know the recipients will love them. What size did you make them?

I love the way they look perfect for every day use - they likely were a big hit with the lucky recipient.

These are sooo cute! And they look like a nice size too. I've been needing some myself for
a long time and never manage to get around to it, but I think you've just inspired me : ).

Whoever the recipient is for these will be delighted! Nice work Karen..and thanks for sharing!
