Caroline, thank you so much for the beautiful coasters!

The craftsmanship is outstanding. I'm still trying to figure out how the weaving bit works.
It's going to be a loooong two weeks. These certainly made me smile when I stopped at the post office today!
Thank you, thank you, thank you!

Those are fun and easy to make!!! I made round ones to keep cords in in the car so they aren't all over the place! You can also slip them on a wine glass.

Sweetie, These next two weeks, if I open a bottle of wine, I'm not using a glass!

True enough though, just wiggled my finger around the weave and could see how stemware could fit in there.

Well, I can't figure out how they work or how they are made. Maybe I'm too dense

So glad you like them. As Bubba said, easy pattern, but does get thick to stitch around the edges. never noticed they could "wrap" around a wine glass, cool to know.

Terry, here's a short video which shows how to make them:

You can use any size square just as long as all pieces are the same size. I have made them for trivets to set hot pots on - used 10 inch squares. Also have made round ones. Used an old CD for a template.


Toggpine and Caroline - those are really pretty!

I have made these and they are the cutest wine glass coasters. Will make one and post a pic of one with wine glass. I have made these as gifts and I LOVE them.

Yep, I made a bunch for gifts this year. I don't think they were really appreciated, but oh well, I tried.

That's going on my to do list! I love the idea of making them with the 10'' squares!

I fussy cut motorcycle fabric and made coasters for my guys who love to ride! And on the folded side, I used bandana fabric.

I'm headed to Cathy's house!!!

BTW, Cathy, did you see LauraP's post of the wine carrier she made for her husband? It holds a box and has an opening for the 'spout' and a strap so you can keep it near and close to you.

I made this for my DH. It is big enough to carry his box of wine and his glass. Now he wants one with a pocket for his ice!

You would be a most welcomed house guest. The current residents of the spare room; not so much.
Trust me if I wasn't on so much cold medicine, I'd probably start drinking, heavily.
