cocktail coasters

i promise i'm knitting...really! but i've been wanting to make these for a while, and receiving some cool new fabric in the mail this week seemed like the perfect excuse to finally do something about it. so no knitting for now, but instead some cute new coasters for the living room:

my sewing machine and this project just did not want to play nice together. i don't know what the problem was, but it seemed that i spent more time re-threading the machine and un-stucking jammed up threads than i did actually sewing these. so if you look closely (please don't), you'll see that their construction is pretty sloppy. but if you look big picture, i think the results are pretty great: i LOVE these fabrics and colors together. i think i'll give these a test spin and have a big ol' icy adult beverage to celebrate!
