Big Stitch coasters to keep.

I’ve been wanting to make myself a set of these big stitch coasters ever since I made them for this tutorial, and I finally got around to doing that recently.

I love projects like this, because they are super functional. As a big tea drinker, I find that you can never have too many little things to set a cup on. Because of that, this is one of my go-to gifts, but this set is the one that I get to keep.

5″ squares of your favorite prints are perfect for this project. The simple shape is a great way to showcase them. After receiving a set of Lotta Jansdotter squares, I knew that this is what I wanted to do with them.

If you’ve not tried big stitch before, this is a good way to try it. You can explore working with different colors and different types of thread, plus the small size makes for a speedy finish.

    These are lovely–I love how using the same binding makes the different prints feel like a set. Second Anna’s comment about your super tidy binding!

    I love these! I’m glad you wrote this post because I missed that tutorial on Sew Mama Sew somehow…I want to try. My binding will not be as neat, but it will be good practice for me.
