Note from Team NZP
Notice that the adhesive side of the fusible fleece is facing you as you smooth the interfacing. We’ll use this adhesive to fuse the top and bottom circle shapes together in the center of our final mug rug. Be mindful of the adhesive during the next pressing step.
  • Press the curved edge along the interfacing only, of both the top and bottom sections.

    Favorite treat flavor would definitely be chocolate over mint any day! Love the look of the peppermint mug rugs.

    I love mint—in tea, candy canes, fresh as a garnish, I plan to try the Hot Cocoa recipe soon.

    I love chocolate and mint as a combo but solo my pick is chocolate. The mug rugs are ;very festive and add cheer to any drink.
