Sew and Tell: embroidered coasters

If you saw my post on my Thanksgiving napkin rings, you may recall I made two types and couldn’t decide which ones to use. I finally made a decision to go with the more casual berry napkin rings.

Now that I can solve life’s major dilemmas like napkin rings, I can move forward. Next up for my Thanksgiving table… coasters.

I used the same casual beige cotton, cut out squares and embroidered a simple acorn on one corner. Then, I simply sewed two squares together with cotton batting in between.  

It's starting to all come together, napkin rings, coasters and my fall centerpiece.

My embroidery skills are a bit rusty and I only know a few basic stitches. For some true inspiration, check out this embroidery piece I found.
