Coasters for Valentine's Day

This four is actually on route to their new home, but I really liked them so I thought I could show them here.

I appliqued the hearts with the technique that I practiced on the wall hangings onto the linen base. This is still the same linen that I have written about before. (Last year I’ve got a whole roll of home-made linen from my grandmother – her mother and grandmother wove it at home by their hands, which is a big treasure. It’s rough weaving, natural-colored or self-colored.) I was sure that these red hearts would look very good on this natural base and I believe I was right.

I made the binding with my current favorite, the red polka dots fabric that turned out to be buttons in great hurry.

I hope everyone has a happy Valentine's day, with roses and many chocolate, red hearts and everything else that comes with it! :)
