These adorable criss cross coasters are so easy to put together and make a wonderful present for someone. All you need is a hand square template making, 2 different coordinating fabrics, interfacing (iron on is a must for me!). Thanks to http://allsorts.typepad.com/allsorts/2006/11/crisscross_coas.html for sharing such a great pattern. I have seen a variation on this by folding each square into a triangle. They make perfect mats for candle holders, plant pots and sometime just a decent brew, plus they are fully washable.
Being a warrior for all that is green i started to feel very excited to when i stumbled upon this nifty tutorial on how to recyle all those junk cds into coasters. http://scrapdash.blogspot.com/2008/03/cd-coasters-tutorial.html I am v excited to start this project and as shall hopefully post some pictures of my finished coaster set soon.
