Pair some of these great coasters and napkins with tomorrow’s placemat tutorials and you could take care of every adult on your “shopping” list. You could also include some handmade napkin rings, a bottle of wine or a tin of homemade, holiday cookies. We also have many amazing, upcoming kitchen-related tutorials so take a breather and wait for all of the goodies in our “For the Kitchen” compilation on November 25th. You could combine items from all three days in a little basket for really special people! At this rate we’re going to have to start working on next year’s list in January.
Appliquéd Coaster
Karyn from Fat Orange Cat shows how to make a cute owl design in her Appliquéd Coaster Tutorial. Karyn sells wonderful things in her shop called Fat Orange Cat: The Boutique.
Wipe-Clean Coasters
Allyson utilizes clear vinyl and favorite fabrics in her Wipe-Clean Coaster Tutorial on her Allyson Hill blog.
Fabric Napkins
In addition to napkins you could easily extend the techniques in Carol’s Fabric Napkin Tutorial to make matching tablecloths. Carol has many additional tutorials on her blog, Windy Hill Designs, and she adds, “I make and sell handmade totes and accessories on various venues—my own website, eBay and Etsy. I like sharing what I’ve learned with others and hope that my tutorials help others to grow.”
Simple Coasters
Suzanne’s Simple Coaster Tutorial via her blog Foofanagle helps you create darling, patchwork coasters.
