A few weeks ago, a friend requested Charley Harper drink coasters.

I made sashiko coasters in Stitched in Color’s Handstitched Class, and I thought that design would make a good frame for the animals from Birch Fabric’s Charley Harper and Nurture lines.

They’re very simple. 4.5″ fussy squares framed by an inch and backed with Robert Kaufman Essex Linen in Olive. I used a half inch seam allowance before turning and closing my opening with some 50wt Aurifil topstitching.

I decided to try to assembly line several of these to have a few leftovers to sell in my Etsy shop. I’m on the fence about whether I want to try to handmake for a shop on a regular basis, but the novelty of having a few things to list has been delightful!

    The coasters are really cute, Daisy! I know what you mean about having the feeling like you need to make for your Etsy shop. I just made a quilt this morning for my store, and while it passed the time, I’m just hoping it sells. Kind of an odd feeling.

    These are super cute! I love the simplicity and the Essex linen is my new favorite all purpose, always awesome, “solid”. This would be a great way to feature favorite charm squares, too.
