A friend of mine is having a birthday party and being a creative person, it has a theme: 'Mat Hatter's Tea Party' - doesn't that sound like fun? And of course we have to wear a hat. So I put my thinking cap on first and thought I'd make a few tumbler coasters for fun - and a small gift at the same time. I remembered one of my sons once bought a bit of a crazy hat with small bells on the end, so the plan is to attach the coasters to the hat. Sure will be crazy, but they were fun to make too.
My friend teaches children aged 4 or 5 so I think she'll enjoy the child friendly scraps I used for these. There were good fun to make - though the binding was probably the most time consuming. They were also a good trial for a similar quilt I'm thinking of making - yet another way to use scraps productively and I seem to gather quite a few along the way.

Until next time,


  1. I bet she'll love them! Cute and fun idea!

  2. Thanks Val, loved your reds too, I'm sure drooling over and appreciating fabric is work too!
