Let's get a jump start on Christmas gifts 2010


I know everyone makes these coasters but why not make them in themes instead of Christmas designs.
I have made these for Halloween, Christmas, Easter, etc...
As a gift make a set for each season, holiday, etc...
Here is my batch of Christmas ones since I make them all in batches and just chain sew them.
I group them in sets of 4 or 6 depending on the size of the family, I tie a ribbon around them and gift them as is or with a companion applique towel.
If I am hosting a party, I give these out as gifts for my guests. I also keep a few extras in case I need a quick gift.
