Coasters, by Rose Pelvin


A recent variation on the coasters I enjoy making from time to time. They each have a "junk" cd inserted into a double weave pocket and sealed at the ends with a single layer. This time I have used indigo cotton warp and one set has the same for weft with a knotty rayon yarn providing the pattern in specks of colour. The other set has a space dyed acrylic weft providing the stripes. It's fun to watch people's faces when they see them for the first time and try to work out how the cd got in there.

That's a very good idea!! It seems like there are always a few CDs around that we don't need!

I have some of Mum's first ones and guess what ...they work, just like real ones. What will you come up with next Mum?

Great idea, Rose. We use ugly, old, naked CDs around here...

And Esther, what do you mean, "they work"??? Of course they do!
