    Mug rugs are a great idea. They can be used at school, at home and in any room.

    Personally I think mug rugs and/or coasters are wonderful gifts. Here are some other non-sewing ideas.

    This first link was written by someone who was an elementary school teacher.

    How about a Garden flag? She can use it in her class room if she wanted too. You can buy the poles seperatly.

    The Mug Rug label idea came from this blog: http://www.hilltopcustomdesigns.com/...-tags.html?m=1 I had my daughter do it in her Graphics program and then I printed it on fabric using: https://www.amazon.com/June-Tailor-C.../dp/B003W0ZC5S
    The Mousepad was very easy. I recovered an existing mousepad with fabric. Used mod podge as glue. Trimmed fabric and then put fray check around edge to prevent fraying.

    Zipper pouches are great. I make my grand kids teachers totes for Christmas every year. They LOVE them.
