Beaded Coasters and Jug cover set

Bright and cheery set of coasters with a beaded edge - was fun to make and has a kind of formal look to it. The beads on the edge make it heavy and good for covering the glass as well. So it's a coaster/ galss cover. It has a matching jug cover too. I made this as a custom order for a visitor at the craft fair and I was happy to see that she loved it.









There is such a sense of accomplishment and satisfaction when your hand-mades are appreciated :) It makes all the time and effort worth it.

Hello Yasmin, How are you sorry I came here a bit late because of my guests they came from Gwalior and stayed with us around 1 month, so I was really busy....
Your crochet is great. I never do crochet although basic I know but never do anything and always very impressed by it... they are really lovely coasters... Why dont you publish a tutorial on simple crocheting, I think it help people like me a lot...
Hope you would like to spare a little bit of your time for me sure you will enjoy

Thank you so much for your kind words, Farah. Good to see you here.
There are such fantastic crochet tutorials on line and you tube videos. I, myself, find these very very helpful. You should try crocheting...knowing how good you are at so many crafts , I won't be surprised if you are excellent at crochet as well.
If you do ever need my help I'm very happy to be there for you.
