Gio Mug Rug FREE Pattern

Updated: Sep 11, 2023

I created these little nuggets this fall while trying to come up with some quick, inexpensive, makes for my big craft shows. I was pleasantly surprised with how well they sold! I've decided to share the pattern with you to help out with those last-minute stock building frenzies we all experience as vendors, at least I hope I'm not the only one who goes mad mass producing as much as possible at the last minute!
