Handmade Coasters and a Giveaway!

Calla Coasters

If you follow me on Instagram, you'll already know that I finished sewing my last handmade Calla Coaster (Ravelry link) a couple weeks ago. Still, I wanted to share about them with you here because they were so much fun to make, and with the holidays coming up, these would make a great handmade gift idea for anyone looking for inspiration. Plus, the pattern is free from Purl Soho, and I always appreciate a good free pattern. Especially when money is tight at the end of the year.

First, let me say it was never my intention to make quite so many coasters. I originally wanted just a few for home, but when it came to choosing my yarn, I couldn't settle on just one color. Instead, I came home with five different balls of yarn, and was able to yield somewhere between 6-8 coasters per ball, which equals 35-ish total coasters.

Obviously I don't need all 35 coasters, so I'll probably give some away as gifts for the holidays this year. But, I also thought it might be fun to throw a giveaway for one 5-pack of handmade coasters to one of my readers. So, if you'd like to win a pack, just enter via the rafflecopter below, and I'll send the package out next Monday to the winner!

Good luck. :)

    1. @tidytipsy: well, luckily the crochet version is really simple, bit you could always just go for the knitted tops. :)

    1. Thanks RosaMarie! That was the main draw for me. Both the knit/crochet tops and the fabric backing. I think they look really neat.
