The Sweet crochet coaster pattern that I purchased from ZoomYummy has proved to be popular and also led to my first (official) commission.
So the story goes, I made one coaster for a friend for a present. She liked it so much that she requested a set to be made for a fundraising event she was holding. The person who received the set (in hot pink and cream) then asked that I make her another set in blue.
This pattern does seem to be very useful. The lady plans to use the coaster sets to make cushion covers, one pink and one blue.
This is the finished product.
Hopefully she will like them, and if she is happy with the price it should cover the cost of a couple of balls of yarn. Even though I will never make enough money on crochet to pay for the hours, it would be good if I could do things like this to at least pay for my yarn habit 🙂
