coasting about :-)

Well after getting my Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing: 150 Inspired Projects from A-Z through the door I was inspired. I noticed she had a page on making coasters, and I thought with the small bundle of fabric I got I could have a practice on the sewing machine. I can sew straight which was a relief cause I can go on to other projects that I have in mind. I ended up making my own design up, had odd ends of ribbons and used that, then I decided I would make it reversible. so I now have a nice tea coaster to put my mug of tea on. I can look at it and I feel humble cause I did that, it sure is a confidence booster knowing that I designed that. Here are the photos not perfect but something I am chuffed with.


  1. Wow, thats great!! Well done!!
    I love the humble feeling of looking at something and knowing that I've made it. Such a great feeling :)
    I'm looking forward to seeing the projects that you have planned :)
