DIY Coasters

This is the story of a thrifted purse...

That met with a tall shiny stranger {ahem, Mr. Scissors}.

Two things happened with this chance meeting {Or was it fate?}.  Here's the first thing...

I made coasters!

All I did was embellish the emancipated squares using my handy dandy Sharpie.  I think they liked it {well at least I did}.

You can make your own by cutting squares out of pleather {or whatever} material.  However, if you use any cotton-y {or any other non-plastic-y fabric}, I'd recommend using fabric markers.

Wonder what else happened with these squares?  To follow the adventure stay tuned!  

To be continued...   

Crafty Love,

    I giggled when I read about Mr. Scissors and the "chance meeting...or was it fate?" :) You are too funny!

  2. What a cute write-up - so creative and fun! I love how you upcycled your thrift store find!

  3. Thanks for your comments Gabrielle & Laurie! =) These were so fun to make!
