Conquering Couching...Almost

So I have been thinking of trying couching a ribbon onto some fabric for use in my coasters. I tried it tonight to decent, if mixed results. In general these did not come out perfect. I also used a fleece liner inside so the part I left open to turn it inside out sticks out a little on each one. Oh well, such is life, it was still fun to couch the ribbon on. I am sure next time will be even better but in the mean time, I really like these!

Reversible Coasters

This project is from a book called Bend the Rules Sewing. They add a ribbon in theirs but I just wanted to try my hand at some of these so I went without. I am hoping to have some friends over for a sewing day to make holiday gifts and other fun things so I wanted to try out some of the projects and this is one of them. Yay Coasters!
