Hello, friends. Like many of my fiber arts and home sewing friends, my mother and I made a collection of face masks for our family members and this project generated a lot of fabric scraps. We used high quality quilter’s cotton (not knitted t-shirt material) for our face masks and, being a resourceful northern New Englander, I couldn’t quite bring myself to throw away decently sized fabric scraps. So I decided to weave mug rugs on my rigid heddle loom:
These coasters were satisfying to make that I’ve decided to share my pattern draft. This project is suitable for weavers of all abilities. I wove my coasters on a rigid heddle loom. If you work on a floor loom, you could easily adapt this to a two or four shaft loom.

If you make some of these yourself, I’d love to see photos! I suspect I’ll be putting on another warp for more soon. Happy weaving and stay well,
