So cute! Thanks for the giveaway.

That is one adorable coaster. I had no idea Aurifil Thread did sampler packs. Now I'm really hooked at wanting to try some. And sew from Ayumi's book.


Thanks for the chance and the pads are adorable!!!!!!!


SO cute! I think I would want to make it a hotpad too!

very cute and now i know why you want to do a hotpad swap, you are in hotpad mode! (; hey, did i just enter a contest?! yippee! (:


Love the use of your Moda ribbon for the tape loop and great bell pepper shape. Thanks for the fun inspiration!

Susan Moorhead

Thanks so much for the opportunity. I'm not much of a "coaster user" either -- what a great idea to re-design this idea into a hotpad. In addition, thanks for sharing your creativity.


I like the idea of hot pads. Plan on getting started as soon as I get home from vacation.


Thanks for the giveaway - I love your take on the coasters! I am in Canada but I have a US mailing address available so please don't disqualify me! :)

I love the hot pad idea! I have my fabric picked and I just need to measure to see if I can make the hot pads! If not I'll make some next time around! Thanks for the measurements!

P.S. The little biscuit or cookie cutters that you show above are identical to one that my grandma handed down to my mother and she to me. When I look at them I feel very sentimental! My handle is green and worn with use and love!
