Birdy Coasters

Pretty little birdy coasters

Really pleased with how these little coasters turned out.  I have been meaning to try them for ages and have finally got round to it.  Have to admit that having a Big Shot and bird die made life a lot easier!  Wasn’t sure whether or not to use batting in the middle at first, but tried one with and one without and much preferred the ones with, had a firmer feel to them.  Love the idea of being able to do a little bit of free machining on them too, because I wanted them to look a little ‘rough and ready’ and it took away the stress of having to be neat, neat, neat.  Chose one of the ‘fancy’ stitches on my machine to go around the edge, again didn’t worry about being to precise with this either!  Love them so much that I am not sure that I really want to put a cup of tea on them, let along a glass of red wine – might end up just being for show!
