I made a couple of quick coasters this week as a gift for some friends visiting from Florida. The designs were from Kreative Kiwi and were free designs in their members only section. The beer mug is done in the 5x7 hoop. The coffee cup design comes in two sizes, one for the 4x4 hoop and one for the 5x7 hoop. I chose the 5x7 so it would be a similar size to the beer mug. I added the names using Embrilliance software. The fabric was all from my stash. I thought they turned out cute!

A couple of months ago I made some coasters for each of our guest rooms with Kreative Kiwi's Swirly Coaster Design. I used the design for the 5x5 hoop. You can use up to 12 different colors in each coaster, but I kept it simple with just one color on each side. I used one fabric for the front and a different one for the back. As long as you use matching bobbin thread, the coasters end up reversible. They'd probably take longer if you did each swirl in a different fabric, but with a single color on each side they stitched up pretty quickly. Now the coasters from our living room don't disappear into the guest rooms when we have guests. :-)
