Sewing coasters

I made this set of coasters for a friend and thought I’ll share it here. Was excited to take the photos and forgot that I haven’t ironed the coasters! Dreaming of having my own little shop like so many of you do.


I’ve always enjoyed sewing but it was often relegated to the back seat for many years. There were more “important things” to do. As I look back, I recall in my primary school days, we had sewing classes once a week for several weeks. These were part of art class. I lost myself in them! We were given this little checkered piece of fabric where we practiced the various kinds of stitches. We put our desks together, sat in a grouped and stitched away while we chit chat. My little fingers worked pretty quickly and I had so much fun! Visualising it now, I find it rather cute and funny—a bunch of primary school girls behaving like old grannies :).
