What to make with left overs...

I was rumaging through my crochet squares the other day and came across the lovely rose pattern  that I had left over from a cushion and rug I made during a crochet along over at Apple Blossoms last March..

So what do you do with squares that keep piling up............... Well may be this....

Take 10, 4" squares.. join 8 together, crochet a pretty edge around, add 3 buttons and there you have it....

The beginnings of a coffee mug carrier and mug warmer. 

This is so easy to make ..


Mug warmer for your favorite Mug..

Sits nicely inside protected ..

Side view..

Closed like a paper bag and easy to carry or placed in your bag..

or ready for that cuppa, Which is what I could do with right now :))

Thanks for stopping by ....

Hugs Pat ..
