Patchwork Coasters

My favorite of all glorious 30 days' worth of Handmade Holidays tutorials at Sew Mama Sew was November 12th's For the Table. I'm so into the linen-and-patchwork look that's showing up everywhere lately, and Foofanangle's tutorial was perfect for the linen yardage and Summer in the City charm squares I'd been saving.

Buy Handmade

I fell in love with this bag as soon as I read about it on Elizabeth's blog and was delighted to find it on Etsy. The mailman didn't's even lovelier in person! I have most of these fabrics in my stash and took a (tiny) while to justify the purchase, but this is the year to do it.
