Makeover Sunday

Hope that posting the makeover on Sunday instead of Monday doesn't throw anyone for a loop!  I have a custom order to share, and I don't want my customer to have to wait one more day because of my blog schedule :)
~*~
My customer fell in love with the top fabric that she saw as a bowl in sosorosey.  She wanted coasters, though.  I happened to have one pillowcase of that fabric left, but that was only enough for 2 coasters.  I put together 4 photos of the top fabric with other coordinating choices, and this was the one she picked.
~*~
And here are the upcycled coasters all crocheted and ready to go protect surfaces in their new home! 
~*~
I tried a couple of new things with these coasters to make them more user friendly than ones I've made in the past.  I cut the fabric a bit thinner and used a smaller hook, and I put a fancy ridge around the edge.  This will help keep glasses more stable and inclined to stay where they belong.
~*~
So, no makeover tomorrow.  BUT, I do have a new rag rug to share.  And later in the week I have a Price is Right game lined up, too.  Be sure to come on back and play!!

These are really pretty. I adore the color combination.

I'm so glad you're posting a rag rug soon. I really love your rag rugs, and I actually searched your blog the other day to find the earth one again. :-)

I'm looking forward to The Price is Right!

These look fantastic, and I do like those colours!
That ridge is an excellent idea too!

I do like your guessing games Jennie :o)
They make me laugh ;o)

Have a fan-dabby week my lovely xxOOxx
