I'm busily preparing for my first ever craft fair at the moment & haven't got much time for blogging - but this place is seriously in need of an update! I'm trying hard to make use of the fabrics in my stash to create lots of loveliness to wow the public with (ha ha), and these coasters are one of the things I've come up with. I bought a charm pack of the Rouenneries collection from French General quite a while ago now - I was totally seduced by all those beautiful reds and faded creams and browns - it's a gorgeous collection. I wondered about making a bag or two, using the squares in decorative strips (an idea I'm definitely going to use at some point), but time being rather limited, I decided to do something a little more straightforward.
These coasters were huge fun to make, so much so that I'm just completing some more using Amy Butler fabrics. What worries me about them is whether people buy coasters any more, and what on earth to charge for them! They take a fair bit of time to make, and I have a feeling that if I charge a realistic price for them no one will be interested. But that's so often the trouble with handmade. Ho hum - I guess all I can do is give it a go.
