I won a giveaway and I made coasters

Im so excited to finally win a giveaway . I visit many craft blogs looking for simple ideas for sewing and many times they offer a giveaway. I follow a blog called Poppy Seed Fabrics ( go over and visit she has her own shop) anyways last week she posted a tutorial on how to make coasters you can find it here , right away I knew I would enjoy doing this project. It uses 5 inch squares ( same size as many charm packs) and I had a charm pack hanging around dying to be used. We were kindly invited for dinner at a friend of my brothers Saturday so friday night I gave it a go and made the host some coasters. I love them!!!!!!! A great host gift especially if you know they appreciate homemade things. So here is how mine turned out.

Shortly after this tutorial was posted a giveaway was posted. Lemon Tree Creation was actually the one who had the giveaway but it was sponsored by Poppy Seed Fabrics. Wanna see what I won........

One fat quarter of each pattern Im SEW excited can't wait to get it . Thanks to both Blogs for the giveaway :)


  1. I'll have to have you over sometime...tee hee :) They are very cute and the material looks great! When do you get it and what are you hoping to make next?

  2. Those are really cute! If I had thought of it, I should have bought some Christmas material at Fabricland the other day when I was there... they had/have a huge sale on and they would make super cute seasonal coasters! And table runners, or placemats, or tree skirts, or or or... :o)


I love comments they keep me encouraged :)
