But I've also been making a few simple things as well, just to use up scraps and pieces of fabric that I've had for a while. These are the smaller items, inspired by Stephanie at The Enchanting Rose. As I have written here previously, she posts some lovely tutorials on her blog, and I can't resist making the small ones because they are quick and easy, and use up scraps!
The next coasters are made from charm squares (5"squares) and a small doiley, or in this case, a crocheted table runner made up of small rounds, that I have cut into individual bits. The doiley is sewn on to one square and backed with another. I used different fabrics for the front and back.
The next thing I've made is a Halloween table mat. The fabrics were at the Quilt shop for 50c a piece, and although we don't really celebrate Halloween, I do like the coloured fabrics that come out at this time of the year! This just needs to have the wadding, backing and binding done to finish it off. This photo is a bit pale, the purple is much deeper than it looks here.
