Country Cottage Coasters

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 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.

Recycle, Recycle…the possibilities are endless

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. I am v excited to start this project and as shall hopefully post some pictures of my finished coaster set soon.
