Sewed up a gift for a friend!

So I kind of waited till Friday night to make these!  Why???  Oh because I'm the worlds biggest procrastinator....just saying! ☺ I am, just ask my hubby! lol! annnnnnd I didn't go to bed till like 4am.

Any ways, I made these for my friend as a housewarming gift. I knew she'd appreciate them and she did!  Plus, you can never have to many coaster, mugrugs or what ever you want to call them!  They help to prevent drink rings on your nice new furniture!  Also, can I just say that she has the most awesome-est pantry in world.....I would punch babies in the face for one of those suckers!!  ( I really wouldn't hit babies) (maybe) lol!!  Sorry....I like crazy quotes like this!!  I'm a fan of quotes, and I sometimes use them!

Well back to the gift..... I'm like a pre-novice sewer, so these are not like all professional, but I did try my best to make them look good. 

**** No fat quarters were hurt in the making of these.... I used my scrap stash! ('',)

And here is the finished product!!  I love making and giving gifts!! 

I used my scrap stash because I wanted them to all be different....but I did incorporate the blue in all of them.  And all of the backs are made from blue jeans (gosh...I always forget to take pics of the backs)!!  Washed of course....I told my friend not to worry, the pieces I used were not from the crotch or the butt area! lol!   She said she'd be worried if I brought over anything made from satin material....a.k.a (undies) lol!!  We had a good laugh about that one.

Here are all the tops done, now time to put them together.  A piece of batting and the backing is blue jean.  Theses are a little bigger than normal, I made them 5 inches x 5 inches.

Can you see my tape, I'm not very good at sewing in straight lines.  Each coaster had a different stitching.  Thanks for the help....tape!

I'm kind of proud of myself on these lil triangles.  Even honey was impressed with my lines!

Made one with their last name initial. 

I liked the way this one came out!!

Here they are all squared up and ready for the binding.....This is where I had to stop....I was soooooooo sleepy.  Staying up till 4 am is never a good idea, unless I'm getting paid for it!!

I woke up at 8 am, and finished these off!  I really like the way they turned out!!  Again...I could kick myself for not taking a pic of the backing!! ugh!! 


I really hope you enjoyed the post!!  Leave a comment! Follow me, or send your friends on over!
