Coffee Time Coasters

So I’ve always been a big coffee drinker ever since I started college, but I want to create a bit of Granny Chic for your home that’s quick and easy to create. I can’t however vouch for the fact your cats might take a liking to these wondrously fluffy items. As I like a quirky desk with some handmade home goodies a coaster for my all hours of the day coffee mug is a must have! They don’t take long at all to make but are very effective and the puff stitch used feels so nice.
