A Handmade Holiday 2013 — Holiday Coasters


Today’s holiday project would make a wonderful hostess gift for one of the many holiday gatherings you’ve got planned. The Holiday Coasters by Alexandra Henry of Alexa’s World are quick to assemble and take only a small amount of fabric. Applique them with the provided gingerbread man, or create your own tree or snowman to add some variety. The coasters utilize our Vinyl-Fuse™ on the bottom size to prevent moisture from seeping through the coaster.
