With Christmas just around the corner, I wanted to make as many handmade gifts as I could this year.  So I thought I'd make a winter version of my Coffee Break Coasters pattern, and I'm so thrilled with how they turned out!  I came up with 5 reasons why you should make them too this year!

1) A Quick and Easy Make
As much as we'd all love to make hand made quilts for all our family and friends, realistically it's just not going to happen.  But by committing to smaller projects, you can still gift handmade, without putting yourself under too much pressure.  

2)  Use up those Scraps 
Christmas prints are just so adorable, so why not use up every last piece to make these coasters, don't let anything go to waste!  These coasters provide a great opportunity to fussy cut prints as well, so put your favourite motifs in the centre and let them shine.

3) Learn New Skills 
Have you tried the 'bagging out' method before?  Not only is it super quick, it saves messing about with fiddly binding on something small.  In the Coffee Break Coasters Digital Pattern, I show you step by step how to do it.  And it's easier than you think! 

4) Create a lovely Gift Set 
This little set of 4 would look gorgeous tied with a ribbon, or why not just make one and purchase a mug and some sachets of hot chocolate to go with it.  Or how about a voucher for your favourite coffee shop.  Gift something hand made and an experience to go with it too.

5) Support Small Business
Makers like me do a happy dance every time you purchase something from us.  You don't get the giant retailers doing that.  So I encourage you to shop small this Christmas, and maybe purchase a digital pattern or two from me.  I will be very grateful.

I hope you enjoy making the Coffee Break Coasters, the pattern is suitable for beginners, I know you'll have lots of fun making them!
