After the success of the crochet leaf and heart coasters, and after seeing so many motif patterns in Simply Crochet magazine which would make nice coasters, I decided to make some more sets which I could use as part of some Christmas gifts.
The first set I made was this lovely peony pattern from Simply Crochet (Issue 16). I used three shades of purple for these as the recipient is currently looking for some purple accessories for their newly decorated lounge.
Very quick and easy to make and I think they look really pretty.
I have now got my eye on making some Christmassy coasters for myself, as I have just come across a pattern for a nice lacy snowflake motif! (Simply Crochet, Issue 13). I will have to add these to the ever-increasing list of coasters to make! I think this year will definitely be the year of the coaster!
