a coffee rug

at work I have a coffee pot that needed a rug under it so I made this! I always see all over flicker the cute little mug rugs so I thought it would be cute to make one..only for the coffee pot!

And i have been wanting to use gray as my background. I love how the scrappy fabrics stand out against the gray. this is actually inspiration for a quilt!

And then the back has a bit of a kitchen feel. It didn't turn out as cute as I hoped so I will go back to the inspiration of flickr for some more ideas.

Like this one! I love the scraps of fabric.

There is even a mug rug swap on Flickr http://www.flickr.com/groups/1533394@N22/
 Here is another cute one I had to show. There are too many posted. I love Flickr!
And I love Craftastic Monday!
