These cute coasters only take minutes to make. I found this fabulous video http://www.youtube.com/user/clothworksfab and in a matter of minutes I had a finished present ready to wrap.
I decided to embellish one of the fabric pieces using Aurifil Brillo Metallic Thread and a variety of my fancy stitches on my sewing machine.
- The Aurifil Brillo Adds some BLING!
I then decided to use my ‘Christmas Red’ Aurilux and created some holiday swirls.
- Aurilux makes my swirls glisten
I have used Aurifil Ne-50wt thread in the bobbin with the Brillo AND the Aurilux. This combination makes sewing these fancy stitches tangle free!
- Christmas presents finished in a flash
If you had fun making these coasters, you might enjoy using the embroidery stitches on your machine to transform a plain cotton sheet set into a special gift.
