WeAllSew Tutorial: Make It Merry Holiday Coasters
"If you are looking for an idea for a quick and easy gift for that special friend, Sandy Fitzpatrick of Hissyfitz Designs has you covered with her Make it Merry Holiday Coasters!" - WeAllSew
"The Christmas music is playing softly in the background, the fireplace is aglow, and the decorations are finally up. If your holiday shopping is complete, you can take some time to yourself to relax. In my world, however, there is always that one last gift that needs to be completed.
I designed these holiday coasters, which will not only add to your holiday décor, but are functional as well. Although they are great as a resting place for your steaming cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, they work especially well for ice cold drinks. I like to have a glass of ice water handy throughout the day, but always run the risk of the glass “sweating” and leaving a little pool of water next to my work area. These little coasters are great for absorbing that extra condensation.
This project is specifically designed for fusible machine applique but can certainly be adapted to use pieced fabric blocks or any “orphan” designs you have lying around."
