Well, I have not only made them, but created a tutorial for you. Don't they look fabulous?
First, I chose my fabric. This is from the line Java by Deb Strain for Moda. I cut up a bunch of squares 5x5 inches.
You will also need some fusible fleece and cut up a bunch of those 4.5x4.5 inches.
I also chose the potpourri that I was going to use inside the mug mat. I chose a cinnamon spice. I only needed one pack (since cinnamon is very strong I didn't use much).
I placed two of my fabric squares right side together and sewed up three sides with a 1/4 inch seam allowance.
I then centered and placed the fusible fleece and both sides and ironed it.
I clipped the corners and flipped it inside out. I also folded in the open end a 1/4 of an inch and pressed it.
I sewed around the edges at 1/8 of an inch, starting at one edge of the opening, going around and stopping at the other edge of the opening. Open it up and put a couple pinches of your potpourri in, turn and sew your opening shut.
That's it! You have Spiced Mug Mats. I managed to make up 8 in about an hour.
Some of these are going to be sent off to some of my friends that responded to my Pay It Forward, Craft Style.
My cousin posted this on her Facebook page and I in turn did the same.
