Guilt Free and All For Me :)

How is everyone doing with your sewing projects?
I actually made the Christmas coasters I've been wanting
for my own home last night.
I've made Christmas coasters for family and for the shop
but I tend to feel guilty sewing for myself.
Anyone else feel that way?
I thought my first project with "Lizzy" should be something fun! 
I made this set of 8 Nutcracker coasters
just in time to put them away until next year :)
You know I had to add red and white polka dots....
What fun it will be to open the rubbermaid container
that houses my Christmas linens to find 
my new table topper and these fun coasters! 
Yesterday I used one of the coupon codes to buy some fun buttons
and trim from Little Red Cottage.
Don't forget to use the coupon codes

  1. The coasters are 'sew' cute :-)! That might be a nice tutorial (hint, hint) :-)! Your corners are very crisp. I have to chat you up about your technique Obi Wan.

  2. those are great. glad Liz is getting a workout.

  3. They are adorable! This is really getting a jump on projects for next Christmas! :)

  4. Your coasters are very fun. How lovely Lizzy is and sews. I love Featherweights but do not have one. Happy New Year and Creative Blessings...

  5. I tend not to sew items to keep - we're only a year or two away from being empty nesters and it's always in the back of my mind that I want to downsize when DS2 leaves. The more I can give away, the less I'll have to pack, although that doesn't always apply to my fabric stash! ;) Love the nutcrackers, and Lizzy is gorgeous - there can be little that's prettier than a vintage Singer! And of course most of them still sew perfectly 40, 50, 60+ years after they were made - I don't think many domestic machines made today will be able to make the same claim :)

  6. love those! what batting do you use? I tried my hand at making a mug rug & well lets just say I need to start over lol!

  7. Ooh I love that nutcracker fabric, I love buying new decor or Christmas clothes at this Time of the year and putting them in My totes, when I open I it the next year, I get early gift :-)
