T-Shirt Yarn Coasters

Once upon a time I made some t-shirt yarn. Yesterday I played with it. "Play" went something like this:
  • Coil
  • Pin
  • Coil
  • Pin
  • Coil
  • Pin
  • Iron on Heat N Bond
  • Machine stitch
  • Clip
  • Thread embroidery needle
  • Blanket stitch
  • Blanket stitch
  • Repeat
Results?




Coasters! Easily mistaken for yarmulkes (why yes, Mr. Handsome Messianic Jewish Hippy Man, I do make kippot, but no, this is something else). Too labor-intensive to be mass-produced. But they're a happy in the living room!

These are so cute!!! And they would make adorable pins for tote bags or T-shirts. Hmmm is that ironic or what?

Thanks for the idea, Ms. Linda! Smaller scale --> less labor-intensive :-) I'll definitely experiment :-)
