In the past week I finished a couple of gifts for work friends and one for my Nan.
The first one is for my soon to be 91 year old Nan. This is the table runner I made in my sewing class which finished up this week :( You may be thinking this is very bright for a great grandmother but if you could see her very yellow kitchen walls you would understand the choice of colours.
A couple of weeks ago I bought, with my work friends in mind, these very cool coffee mugs that are double walled. I thought the extra insulation was great as we rarely get through a full cup of coffee/tea while it is still hot. Then I started thinking what am I going to give with them.
They are always so interested in my sewing so I decided to make these coasters to go with their mugs. You can find a great tutorial from Jeni at In Color Order. These are great for using little scraps of fabric, which I am always wondering what I'm going to do with. I varied the quilting on the coasters to keep it interesting. I hope they'll like them!
I will be linking up to Sew Modern Monday.
