We are stepping up our sewing game this week! Yes, we know the basics of sewing (thanks moms!) but we want to push our techniques and move from beginner to extra special beginner.
So testing out a few tricks of the trade plus some fun techniques we’ve seen on pinterest, we whipped up some fun and quirky quilted coasters. With a little batting sewn into the inside, they are textural and extra cushy for our upcoming cocktails and coffee break. And if I may, a note to other fellow beginners. A patterned cotton is your best friend! Event though I love the matte lilac and pink, they show every mistake. The pattern dots and triangles were more forgiving and allowed me to hide my overlaps, stitching run-overs, and creases a little better.
Up next? We might have to hit up a few projects out of A Beautiful Mess’s project book. We’ll let you know how those turn out too and if we have follow up tips.
