    several people have talked about these coasters lately so decided to make a set last night for a little gift for someone today. They are really easy and work up fast.

    Very cute!! These do stitch up very quickly, don't they? They can be made bigger & with some Insulbrite for pot holders too. Very nice job Sharon - I'm sure they are going to be loved!

    Geez Sharon I love them!!!! Did you put anything in them to add stiffness to the bottom, or are they good to go as they are? And now you know what I'm going to be making! :wink: Copy Cat is I! lol!!!!! :D

    I put warm and natural left over batting in them but you could use toweling or anything that is absorbant.
    Also liked the idea earlier of making them as potholders and using insulbrite. Lots of ways of doing this pattern, easy, fast, and nice gifts. Also if you make them from scraps of Homespun material you don't even have to turn them inside out. :wink:
    Thank you all for nice comments. :D

    Cute. I need to make some of those. I have several coaster that the sweating cups stick to and then the coasters drop in your lap, water and all. Those look like they would do much better, and of course much much prettier.
