Yesterday in my blog reading, I came across a fantastic tutorial by Sharla @Thistle Thicket Studio: the 5 Minute Hexie Coaster Tutorial. I seriously could not wait to give them a try, and I love how they came together.
It did take me a bit of time to prep the fabric to make the coasters. I did not have any precut hexies on hand, but I found a great tutorial on how to cut hexies by Katy @from the blue chair. I cut hexagons that were 6-inches point to point and then followed Sharla’s tutorial.
Early in the morning, we had a bit of light rain yesterday. The rain is so welcome (the drought has been so horrible) and the fact that it was gentle enough to soak in and not fast or hard enough to cause more mudslides was extra wonderful. In fact, seeing a rainbow yesterday morning probably helped inspire my fabric pull for these coasters. 🙂
Tip: When turning the coasters right side out, I used a chopstick to help push out the corners.
I gave the coasters away almost as soon as I made them. I’m pretty sure I’ll be making more in the near future *squirrel*. Thanks for the great tutorial, Sharla!
