Sew Crafty Friday for January 4
I have missed being able to take part in Sew Crafty Friday, and have very little to share today, but wanted to post a little something.
These are some Christmas coasters which I made with the idea of using them in a gift exchange. I ended up not using them, so here will be the start of a nice gift for someone next year. I made these using odds and ends of some of my favorite Christmas fabrics, and thought they came out very pretty.
This photo shows the back of one of the coasters. The backing fabric is the same on each of them. I absolutely love this vintage-looking material (I bought it a few years ago) with its birch-bark appearance. This is all I have to share today, but if you’d like to see what others have been working on, or if you have some craftiness to share, do head on over to Waiting for Him and share your projects. Shereen and others will be eager to see what you have to share.
I live in scenic northern New England with my handsome husband. We're empty-nesters with a bunch of adorable grandchildren. We love (tent) camping and traveling, but don't get away as often as we'd like to.
