Reverse Applique Coasters

Over at Craftmad back in October 2012 our sewing swap was Coasters.  Yes, took me a while to finish this one because of a mixture of time and motivation.  In December I finally completed the coasters above and sent them off to my very patient partner Cathy.  :-)  I had so much fun sewing these coasters which apparently is Reverse Appliqué that I made another two sets from friends at Christmas time.  I found the pattern here at 'The Sometimes Crafter' great tutorial.  You can see the other swapped coasters in our gallery here at Craftmad.

*Tip - in the tutorial the edge of the coasters are cut with pinking shears.  I don't own a pair of them so I used my Crafters Companion paper cutter with the wavy edge blade.

Enjoy your third week of the year.

I would like to share these at:

For the very first time I thought I would share this in Jill's -
as this is definitely something I finally got around to it. :-)

  3. Very pretty coasters!!
    Love them and love the colors and fabric you used.
    How long does it take to make one?
    Hope you have a great week!

  4. Not too long Michelle....about two hours all up. Thats why I ended up making a couple of sets.

  5. Impressive needlework Merry, I will think it's so rewarding to know you crated something that's both practical and attractive.
