I was just beginning to enjoy the summer, when I was confronted in my e-mail (yesterday) and in the craft store (today) about the holidays. Should I be planning for the Holidays now? In this heat? It is hard to think about winter holidays, when it is over 100 degrees outside!
Now that the holidays have been brought to my attention, it is hard to ignore them. So, I began to think of items to make and I remembered two patterns that were recently released by the designer 4LilBeans, who I follow on ETSY.
This pattern is called the Spring Coaster, but I think these coasters look like mini mandalas. these coasters are colorful, can be done in a variety of colors and used for any time of the year. This is a great gift that can be made quickly.
This pattern includes the instructions for four different flowers and two different size leaves. There motifs can be used in many different ways, they can be used for:
- Yarn bomb projects
- Decorate clothing, headbands, crochet slippers, and bags
- A garland to brighten up the room
- A mobile for a baby's room
- Framed as a picture or added to a frame
- Embellishments on cards or gifts
- Put together as a table Runner
The great thing about these patterns are the instructions, they are step-by-step instructions with lots of photos.
Have a great week!
