My first homemade present

One of my resolutions this year is to make more homemade gifts for the people I love.  My sister had her birthday this last week and I was very excited to make her a present!  I found a great tutorial for making cloth coasters.  I was thinking of doing an applique as they did in the tutorial but instead I found some amazing fabric with beautiful flowers.  Each coaster features one of the flowers and they are in similar colors of white and blue:

 

Not too bad for my first homemade gift!  I learned a lot about sewing an invisible seam from the outside to finish off the coaster.  
Here they are all wrapped up:


There are two more birthdays in March that I am plotting and planning for :-)

I haven't forgotten about my new outfit post--I really want to take some pictures outside this time in our lovely little village....so I promise it will be soon!

Happy sewing everyone!

  2. That's beautiful fabric.

    Thanks so much stopping by my blog, www.sewingwithtrudy.blogspot.com and commenting on my What I'm Wearing post. I'll probably do another one of those next week sometime. Right now I have posted a scarf refashion that I made out of a shirt. It turned out really nice. Have an awesome day!
