French Braid Mug Mat

French Braid Mug Mat

This French Braid mug mat is a great way to try out the French braid piecing technique! It’s much easier than it looks. This is also a perfect scrap buster since it’s constructed using strips that are only 1 ½” wide. Staci from CraftsyStaci used a solid piece of fabric for the backing, but there’s also the option of using the same method there, to use up even more of those scraps. This simple project makes a great gift!

To make this mug mat, you'll need:

  • fourteen 1 1/2 x 7″ strips, cut from 7 different fabrics
  • fusible fleece (at least 13 x 8 1/2″ – we'll cut it later)
  • fabric for the backing (at least 6 1/2 x 8 1/2″ – cut it later)
