So as most of you probably know, it rains quite a lot in Vancouver. When I first saw these coasters in one of my mom’s sewing books I thought ‘Oh, cute!’ and flipped to the next page. Fast forward about half a year and I see the design and think ‘VANCOUVER!!! <3’. Since I miss Vancouver quite a lot and one of my best friends from Vancouver graduates from UBC this summer there were more than enough reasons to make one of these. Or maybe 2 or 3…
The design is from Christie Fowler and was published in the ‘Zakka Style’ book. I modified it somewhat by machine stitching instead of stitching by hand. I definitely have to improve my free motion quilting skills – a lot! But I love how these turned out anyways and I’m sure my two best friends in Vancouver will love them, too! 🙂
This is project #5 of 52 craft projects I’m attempting to complete in 2013.
