  1. Believe it or not, I think my husband would really like these.

  2. I think these would be great for my (soon-to-be) mother-in-law. We stole her coasters earlier this year, so I'm sure she could use some fun new ones.

  3. I was just thinking I need to make some new coasters.... and that fabric is tooooo beautiful!! I think my parents would love them too though... maybe 4 for my fam and 2 for them. :)

  4. I'd definitely make these for me, myself, and I. Our coffee table is in dire need of some coasters, and the color combo for these is perfect.

  5. These look like fun! I think the fabric would look great in my parents' living room.

  6. So nice. I totally need coasters. I need some to put on top of my piano so that those terrible sweat rings don't ruin the wood. So, yes. I would make a few for me. And then a couple for my sister-in-law.

  7. Great idea, and it looks like it would be a great beginner project for me! dianejjarvis at gmail.com

  8. These are so cute and would be perfect for my sister in law and her husband!


  9. I would love to make these for my yarn store owner. I know.. but a big group of us sits around and knits all day on Fridays and her tables are starting to show rings from all those coffee cups..

  10. These would be amazing in my in-law's tv room. They are always cleaning up little rings on their coffee table.

  11. I'd love to make them, those are the colors of our living room rug. They'd be perfect for protecting our end tables!!!

    I would keep these for me. Last year for Christmas I made my husband these great coasters from tiles and attached family pictures with embossing powder. They were very pretty and he really loved them...until we started using them and the ink from the pictures started RUNNING!! Now they look more like an impressionist painting of the pictures! I promised to make him new ones, but haven't gotten around to it yet, but these might just fit the bill instead...and the colors sure wouldn't run! ;)
