Father’s Day mugrugs and coasters

My hubby has a habit of putting folded up paper napkins under his glass. I end up with little squares of paper napkins everywhere he sets a drink down. Most often this happens at his desk and on his nightstand. So I made some mugrugs for the nightstand and coasters for the desk (there’s less space on the desk). I made two of each so that some can be in the laundry while others are in use. They are reversible and made with some awesome upholstery samples I’ve been hoarding.

I like this idea! That’s a good size for the small mugrug. My husband doesn’t even bother with a folded up napkin so we get sticky rings on everything instead…

What a great idea! And, you chose some great neutral fabrics to make them more masculine-looking. Good idea to make an extra set, too. I have some upholstery samples to use up, and I am adding mug rugs to the list of things I can make with them. Thanks for the inspiration!

These are great! I love the fabrics you chose (and busted out of stash purgatory!) and that you made one to use, one to launder. I’m a big fan of that strategy myself.

These are excellent. I have fabric samples… somewhere. :roll_eyes: :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:
I will also add this idea to my list. My husband has some ceramic coasters, but I would love fabric ones for our bedroom. Did your husband love them? Or better yet, is he using them? :grin:

Great idea, makes me want to make some! But it’s so dry here, there’s no condensation on glasses. Maybe I should move…
