Building a Bigger, Better Coaster

I have to give my best friend credit for this wonderful idea. My "Critter Coasters" are all standard size; they are about 4 inches across and can handle a normal sized coffee mug or drinking glass.
So my best buddy said to me - "Who drinks out of normal sized mugs and glasses?". I thought about it and realized that she drinks out of a 48 ounce, double insulated tumbler for most of the day and I, myself, have a favorite mug that looks more like a soup bowl than a coffee cup. Obviously there is a demand for a bigger coaster to accommodate our bigger mugs and glasses but can it be done? I tried to think of a BIG critter that would be fitting of a BIG coaster...So, as you can see it is possible to make a larger coaster. But will it really make a difference? See for yourself:

Hi Robin

I've had so much fun tonight checking out your entire blog and your etsy store. Girl, you're amazing!

Hugs!

A rhino or hippo would work well too, but the giraffe is too cute!

What a great idea! Tons of bigger animals out there to hold our big cups. I too, have a 'soup bowl'. :) Maybe you could look back into the 'extinct animal era'. A tyrannosaurus rex or a woolly mammoth would be SO cool! :)
