Coaster Set Envelope (+Template)





Finally, after a long hibernating sewing time !! Sewing coaster sets is what I've been doing all week long. I made them using batik fabric I bought from Dreamesh and some scrap from this dress. The umbrella patterned batiks has been kept in my container for 6 months. Its umbrella pattern is so cute and honestly I don't dare to cut it even an inch :D After a long discussion with my best debate partner (who else? my husband !) I finally cut that treasure. No tears, I swear :D

Enough about the tears, let's talk about the coaster set. I hosted a small gathering with my old friends along with a mini dinner last weekend and had no idea about the souvenirs. few days before the dinner. And after (not so) long searches, I came up with the idea of giving each of them a set of coasters that was enveloped in a small clutch. I made six coasters. Well they turned out kinda pretty, I guess

If you want to make it yourself, I give you this Coaster Set Envelope + Coaster Template. Please remember that it is just a measurement guide, not a ready-to-be-traced pattern

Tutorial ? Lets see if I had an enough free time tonight to write it.

I linked this post into these link parties
ps : I still owe the cardboard hanger template for Mass Manan. Maybe I really need that free time for myself :)

  2. hebat gak pake nangis Mbak

    aku juga punya tuh kain yang aku beli, rencanany pingin bikin ini itu
    eh sampe di rumah, kok sayang banget ya kalo dijadikan percobaan gitu, secara, aku kan jahitnya gak sip...gak kayak Mbak Citra..
    jadi daripada gagal dan bikin nangis, akhirnya tuh kain tetep aja utuh sampe sekarang. gak tega juga buat guntingnya...

    hehehe kita sama Mbak

  6. It's a beautiful batik fabric indeed. We made the same pattern of fabric (but in blue-white combination) into a pillow cover with pompom accent all around & blog it here: http://blog.sweetbatik.com/2010/12/dont-worry-its-not-raining-inside-house.html

    O ya, kemarin aku tulis email :)

    Love,
    Dina
