I love magazines.
Knitting, crochet, sewing, cooking, running and pop culture.
I have this grand idea that I will cook recipes, knit items and sew fun things from patterns in the magazines.
However, I rarely do it.
I tried to change that this week.
I chose a simple coaster pattern from Simply Sewing (I love this magazine-I signed up for a subscription recently).
I went on the site and downloaded the template.
I traced, sewed, fused and cut four coasters.
A BIG disaster.
Ugh, they turned out HORRIBLE.
Honestly, I didn’t even have fun sewing them.
As I sat there looking at the four disastrous coasters, I remembered that I had purchased a mug rug kit from Missouri Star Quilt Co. during one of their sales.
I decided to try a couple of these.
Although I didn’t follow the patterns included in the kit, I had fun making these and am pleased!
Aren’t they cute!!
A hodgepodge of stash fabrics, both gifted scraps from a friend and a 5″ charm pack I received free from MSQ Co. as part of the sale.
I have one by my seat on our couch and my husband has one by his recliner.
(Using my brother’s Beatles glass-memories indeed)
The third one went in the mail to a friend.
I am currently using a saying to make a larger one for my bedside table.
Ahhhhh, its so nice when things go well 🙂
Have a good weekend!
