i heart linen coaster set

Noodlehead   i heart linen coaster set sewing

Of course I heart linen.  How could you not? (okay, don’t answer that)  I had gotten Rashida’s book a long time ago from our library.  Have I ever mentioned how much I love our library?  I get to request books online then they show up at our local library down the street, my idea of heaven.

Anyway, I finally got to making the coaster set from the book.  They’re just so cute.  I’ve seen tons of tutorials and just about everyone making coasters and now I know why.  It’s just a quick and fun project that doesn’t have a lot of rules.  Love that.

I used scraps and just pieced my coaster tops however I wanted, easy peasey.  And the little storage tray is just adorable. This one’s going out to a friend of mine, but I think I’ll be making more.  They’d be great hostess or Christmas gifts!

    I love the coasters. I’ve never made any, but this makes me want to…tonight :) Great fabric choice.

    Those are so pretty. I love the holder. I’ll have to check my library to see if they have any good books. I guess I always assume they won’t have anything current.

  13. Krista 11.17.2010 at 5:48 pm #

    what a great combo! that holder is pretty genius. I must utilize my library more and check out that book.

    So adorable. I want that holder for coins and junk from my pockets!

  21. Nana Nonsense 11.17.2010 at 11:29 pm #

    Thanks for sharing a great craft idea! I have also seen postings showing coasters, but not one with the holder – that just makes it! Also, thank you for checking my blog out. I hope you will continue to check on me from time to time. :)

  22. Laura 11.18.2010 at 12:22 am #

    These are great. How did you make the little holder?

  23. Delia 11.18.2010 at 12:41 am #

    I love the spiral quilted one. I am not a quilter but I would like to try these! Do you mind if I ask if there is interfacing in them?

  24. Angela 11.18.2010 at 3:04 am #

    Those are so cute, such great fabric choices. I’ve been wanting that book for awhile, I may have to put it on the Christmas list. :)

  25. Cate 11.18.2010 at 4:46 am #

    They are the best! I was thinking about placemats, napkins and coasters for my xmas table, but I never would have been crafty enough to come up with such a canny little holder! too clever! xxx

  26. Carla 11.18.2010 at 8:44 am #

    Those would make a wonderful gift for Christmas! Thanks for the idea and now I’m off to find the book. :oD

    so pretty!!

    I have been eyeing that book for MONTHS. I finally went on amazon after seeing your post and bought it!

  28. houseonhilltop 11.18.2010 at 10:37 am #

    Love them. The tray is great too.

  29. amy smart 11.18.2010 at 12:40 pm #

    SO Cute. I love linen too. These are super sweet. (I love libraries too. They are the best.)

  30. Happy Together 11.18.2010 at 5:12 pm #

    She does have a lovely blog. And I love the coasters you made! So cute!

  31. Nicole 11.18.2010 at 6:11 pm #

    i love the colors!

  32. Lori 11.18.2010 at 9:51 pm #

    I love, love the coaster set. And I agree with everyone that the holder makes it so special. I see many teacher gifts in my future. I too ran over to Amazon and grabbed it…after a disappointing search at my library :( I’d rather own it anyway. Thanks!

  33. Becka 11.19.2010 at 1:40 pm #

    Thos are so awesome. I love them! As a librarian, I LOVE to hear people say they love their library. :)

  34. jayayceeblog 11.21.2010 at 12:27 am #

    Love the whole thing. I’d like to have a set for myself and make some for gifts. Must get this book!
