I’m so thrilled to be a part of Erin’s blog hop for her charming new book Sweet Tweets. It was hard to choose which project to make, but I finally settled on the Rainy Day Bird Coaster. I love Erin’s style because it is so similiar to my own Sewing Illustration technique. Her simple, large motifs really make it easy for anyone to make these projects.
Because you always want two coasters when you are having a friend over for coffee, of course I couldn’t make just one. The first one I made I followed her design almost exactly (except I substituted lace trim for the crochet edging) and I love how it turned out. For the second one, I took some liberties and created my own design.
These little coasters (or tea mats, as I like to call them) were so quick to make and I think that they make a perfect gift. In fact, these two are on their way to a birthday party tomorrow and I’m sure that the birthday girl will adore them.
Make sure you check out all the other stops on the blog hop and don’t miss tomorrow on Erin’s blog Why Not Sew for the final stop.
