Wedding Gifts!

Well, it's wedding season here again and I've been working a few special projects. One thing I have come to settle on is that a few key items can make a house into a home. One of them for me is coasters. The other is something monogramed.

This particular monogram is on a large flour sack towel. I printed a 8x10 page with one letter and placed it under the towel. I was able to simply trace the outline using a pencil. I then used the back stitch to create this simple letter. I did 2 towels for this gift.

For the coasters:

You will need:
Floor tiles
paint or StazOn Ink
Polyurethane spray
felt pads (pre-sticky) or felt to protect the bottom of the coaster.

Make sure the tiles are clean and dry. Stamp your design on the coaster and allow it to dry completely. Spray 3 layers at least 2 hours apart.

Put protective pads on the bottom of the tiles.
