Orange you glad I made coasters?

For a little bit of fun I participated in the Kindred Crafters Coaster Swap. I figured it would get me sewing again and coasters make for a relatively quick project that I can do after the baby goes to bed and before I do (which is not too much later than the baby!) I had to wait to post about it until my swap partner got her package from me.

I was paired with Kindred Crafter’s very own Donna. She said she was into orange. I hope she meant it because here are the coasters I made for her.


I wasn’t sure how many I was supposed to send so I made 2 sets of 4 that would be complimentary to each other. Lots of luscious Joel Dewberry Aviary fabrics with natural linen. And, of course, lots of orange orange orange.

I backed them mostly in the woodgrain print…but one special one got a little birdie love.
(Please pay no attention to the very not straight edges.)

And of course, I have to have one more shot from the side.

Best of all…it sounds like they were a hit with Donna!

    I’m definitely going to be making these, so cute. I think I’m going to sew in the middle recycled plastic bags, sandwiched in between so any moisture on top won’t go through to my wood tables. Great Idea, thanks for sharing.
