Wine glass coasters
size 10 cotton thread
0.50-0.75 crochet hook
(darning needle or any needle which can handle size 10 cotton thread),
make another 30cm of the zigzag braid
and cloth for the pattern
Start with doing the braid and will be
better if you can do even with about 5 cm more than the pattern requested.
First we imprint the pattern in a
piece of cotton. The cloth can be any color which will allow you to see clearly
the design and the work.
The pattern can be drawn with a single
line or two. When you have a single line you need to lay your braid on the top
of the line and when there are two lines lay your braid between the two lines.
Next we will start to do the basting
of the braid with a contrasting color.
After all the braid is in you can
start sewing in the ends and where the design need to catch together the braids
to give shape to the motifs.
Next is the fun part of filling in the
Here you have the finished coaster but
if you want, you can add an outside rim to make it more sturdy .
Now your lovely work is ready to be
taken off the pattern. It is advisable
to cut the basting thread from the back of the pattern so not to cut the
lace by mistake.
These coasters are very lovely in
pastel colors for a Easter table or Christmassy colors, matching with the
table cloth or napkins.
Now I hope this is an enjoyable tutorial for you all.
Happy crafting all
