March CRAFTalong project

I was just looking through my last few posts and realized that I actually finished a sewing project that I haven't posted about yet.

(Good thing too, since it's too darn hot here to do any sewing or to think of something clever to post about.)

Ta Da! Crooked coasters to go with our new summer tablecloth.

I picked up the tablecloth (Liz Claiborne) at Linens 'N' Things when they were clearing everything out. I love how colorful and festive it looks. The Crooked Coasters were the March project for Finny & Donk's CRAFTalong 2009. I made the coasters from a thrifted sheet and tried to use up leftover thread from other projects. It's hard to see the different thread colors, but they are light green, yellow and light orange. I'm thinking about a set of matching napkins too.

The Crooked Coaster tutorial can be found here at The Long Thread.
