I was going to make placemats or mug rugs but then settled on coasters instead, probably because I really enjoy working on smaller items and it takes less time to finish. I mixed some of the lovely prints without much thinking, just the colours and patterns that I like and thought would go nicely together. I can play with fabric that way all day long. There are so many interesting combinations. It seems like I almost never can stay away from pink. Do you have a favourite colour that you can't stay away from?
The design of the coasters is very simple, a few rectangles sewn together, the back is plain too. A running stitch in dark brown was added around the main square. For the label I used a lovely cotton ribbon "handmade" that I found in a two-dollar shop. I was with my friend at that time who does not sew at all, she was very
One more little project goes off my list. The coasters are packed away now, I know that one day I am going to find a new home for them, but for now they are settled in a box with some other makes. The problem is that quite often I make things not because I need them, but purely because I feel like sewing. And I am so happy that I can do just that.
Have a wonderful week filled with joy and crafting! Larisa xox
