Crochet Coasters

Blog / 21 May 2012

Did you see the post on the Mollie Makes blog for the gorgeous crochet coasters by Yvonne Eijkenduijn back at the beginning of May? If so then your know how lovely they look and if not then your in for a treat!

They have been photographed on the Yvestown blog in a rainbow of really beautiful colours which always catches my eye...I love a good rainbow of colours!

They are pretty quick to hook up and I already had some light weight cotton from my vintage jumper project.

It's not quite a rainbow of colours but they go really well together and I'm still trying to use up some of my yarn hoard before I buy new stuff...difficult as that is!

I decided to frame them in a 3D type frame that I picked up at a car boot sale. I covered the back board of the frame in some unbleached calico and then stitched them on. Its pretty simple but gives a nice effect, and I have way to many coasters already anyway.

I've been wanting to make a collage of different framed bit and pieces for a while now and I've collected lots of little I just need to work on filling them here is the first bit of the collection.  I'm thinking some little paintings...a black and white photo form my wedding...maybe an embroidery sampler and some of my favourite fabric and ribbon swatches.  Here is a really lovely example form The DDeckor blog.

How do you show off or share your little bits and pieces? Have you got your own framed collage? If so, leave me a link...I'd love to see them!
