Sweet Crochet Coaster Set

My first commission! Well, I think I will give them away for free, but that still counts?! Maybe 🙂

I mentioned in my “Cute Crochet Frames” post that I was giving away a coaster and a frame as a present. Well, I think she liked them because she asked me to make a set for her to give away at a fundraising event.

So I have made six coasters in off white and bright pink with a larger one for a jug.

Along the way though, I discovered that I have been doing the pattern wrong. The large one in the middle is exactly as ZoomYummy designed them and I made them smaller for my purposes. However, somewhere along the way I stopped looking at the pattern and made the white parts (flower stems) different as well as the outer pink row. I have corrected the petals but I like the white and I am going to keep making them this way.

I am very happy with how they turned out.

This pattern is getting lots of uses with the different changes I have made for each use. The makeup remover pads are different again 🙂

Now I will need to package them up and hand them over then start working out what my next project should be. Any ideas?

  1. They’re uber-pretty, pattern-wronged or not! Plus, there’s something about red and white…they just go together so well 🙂

    • Thank you. I think they are too. And now that I have made so many (and finally done the pattern correctly) I don’t need to refer back to the pattern anymore. Which saves time. I really dislike following a pattern.
