    Awesome tutorial. I LOVE that you have added the extra protection in this mug rug using the Insul-Brite. I really like that so it helps protect table tops or wooden desks if you have a really hot cup. Great idea. Thank you.

    Thanks for sharing the cute mug rug tutorial and the giveaway. For the last month I have not been able to leave a comment on the AGF blog. Sometimes rafflecopter doesn’t work for me, but today on your blog it is doing OK.
    Earlier had read about your accident and hope that you can get over the emotional trauma of such a big scary crash.

    Love this one. Thank you for explaining just what a mug rug is. I’ve been seeing a lot of them recently. Might just have to make a couple for our pint glasses and snacks 🙂
