Black and white seersucker fabric coasters

I just made a ton of these black and white seersucker fabric coasters by custom request.

I really like the way that they came out.  The customer that requested them asked for the same print on both sides.  These black and white seersucker fabric coasters are made from 100% cotton so that they are machine washable.

Initially, I thought that they needed a bolder graphic black and white print on the reverse side. Now I am toying with the idea of a bright solid color on one side so that the fabric coasters are reversible.  I think hot pink or cobalt blue would be lively and great for this time of year.  That would make them a bit more fun for summer drinks on the patio.  I think I will try some out – stay tuned for them to show up in the shop.black-white-fabric-coasterI could say that they are a bit “buttoned up” or is it down? No that would just be a bad, bad pun.  Check them out here on the website or in my Etsy shop for a set of six.

New Fabric Coasters for Christmas and Beyond

New fabric coasters for Christmas and beyond I had some really great Christmas print fabric scraps around and I thought I would make up a few fun sets for my shop.

I really like how this set of fabric coasters is very subtle and can be used year round – on both sides. Gray Premier Prints damask (Madison in Storm Gray) is a big look right now and red dots are always in style.

If you live in a small home or you are storage challenged (been there), having a versatile home decor item like this is perfect.  This fun Michael Miller Christmas swirl with the Premier Prints gray dot on the reverse? A bright alternative to typical Christmas themes for sure.

This set with the funky trees all over it is near and dear to my heart. This is one of the fabrics that I used to make some homemade stockings last year (I’ll post a pic when they are hung by the chimney with care).

Lastly, but certainly not least, I made these bright Alexander Henry Juicy lemon print coasters.  I must confess, I actually made a set of these a few years back and gave them away as a gift.  And I have wanted a set ever since. Summer cocktails will never sound so good in a couple of months!  These are the thoughts to keep close as we face this blast of cold air throughout the country and especially in the northeast.

I have quite a few vintage items coming soon and some other handmade goodies like more pillow covers and more fabric coaster sets.  Keep on the lookout.

I will also be posting my progress on the clutter issue really soon.

Talk soon,
