I have been wanting to try out making some fabric coasters as I have seen some lovely ones around the blogs lately. So this is my version. I used the hydrangea print on the front and backed them with the most beautiful linen that once belonged to Mr Bigs nana. I am so pleased with how these came out although next time I may add half an inch to the square so they are bigger. I used a lovely piece of trim to bundle them up and keep them stored all together.
Next I came across this wonderful tutorial via Novys blog. I really like the idea of having somewhere to store all my cards, or even some extra cash, so this little change purse was just perfect. Now I just need to make one for myself as well.
The other part of the swap was to share some goodies from your stash as well as something sweet. So here is a bundle of red that went off in the package. There was also one of these inside, as it isnt valentines day without some chocolate. And if you havent tried this chocolate then run out and get some now. It is seriously good and seeing as it is organic and fair trade you dont have to feel guilty at all for indulging.
