Brainstorming the Mug Hug~

We’ve been tossing around some excellent ideas during our Yahoo Loom Class Group session this week!  As I mentioned in the last post, we’re working on the Cabled Mug Hug (pattern available here, video tutorials available here).

Along with the few ideas I’ve mentioned before, you can also use this very same pattern, with a few minor alterations, for:

  1. Napkin rings.
  2. Wrist bands.
  3. Head bands.
  4. Repeat the pattern in width and you can make a Neck Warmer.
  5. This one’s my favorite of the new ideas:  Otter Pop Pockets!!!  😀  Isn’t that a terrific idea?  You could stitch the sides up just like the cell phone caddy and insert the popsicle so little hands aren’t too cold…make them in different colors for easy popsicle recognition!  (Many Thanks, Tammy!)

In what ways would YOU  put this simple, yet extremely versatile project into use?? Feel free to drop your ideas into the comments right here at the blog. 😉

Happy Mug Hugging!

    I’m way past using it for this, but I think these would make really nice tampon or pad holders.

    Ooooo…you’re so right, Brenda! They would tuck away nicely in something like this and be pretty too! Thanks for the tip! 😀

    I had no idea what otter pops were until I saw the pictures. We call them Freeze Pops out here. Great idea though! I’m considering making one for when the tooth fairy comes! My boys can put their little pearlies in the pouch!

    Terrific idea, Jessica! 😀 I love that one…it makes being the tooth fairy a much easier job (I always tended to have a very tough time actually locating the tooth without disturbing the sleeper, lol!)

    I love that we can all brain storm together for inspiration…thanks for your input! 🙂

    Hi Tara! 🙂

    I definitely think it’s possible to make a wine glass holder on the looms like those in your links, but I wouldn’t necessarily start with the Cabled Mug Hug as a base. I think this project would need to be made in a completely different manner, using a wider strip, but one that decreases on one side, to better fit the contours of a wine glass. I think some short rows might be a terrific way to make one of these! What an interesting concept…I hadn’t spotted one of these before! 🙂
