I’ve been remiss in posting about the Coaster Swap! I sent mine off a week or so before the deadline but didn’t want to post anything until I knew my partner had received them and then I just forgot.
The coasters above are the ones that Liesl Made sent me combining my love of pink and my husband’s love of brown. They remind me of computer mouse pads and I think they are made of the same material with the image digitally printed on them but I’m not sure. They work great as coasters though and have already been well used around the house.
I made something a bit different. Liesl mentioned like the color combination of black, white and yellow and playing cards. So I thought I could combine those two loves using reverse applique.
In the first round I used yellow thread on the black fabric but thought there was too much contrast so I ripped it out.
I like the black thread on black fabric much better!
I also made a set of yellow coasters. I think the overall look is better on these but since it’s bright yellow I wasn’t sure if she would use them. I figure having both sets she can choose to use one or the other and if she has a party she can use both.
