I have to start this post by saying how very much I dislike having things around the house that I see no purpose for. One of those things, unfortunately, was this hexie wall hanging.
I made it way back in June and I loved everything about it except for the fact that it was a wall hanging and I could not find a place for it in our house. As much as I tried, it did not seem to fit anywhere. One of the reasons, I suspect, is the fact that we have pillows and quilts all over the house so adding more quilty goodness to the walls seems a bit too much.
So, after way too much thinking and pondering I decided to chop the wall hanging up and turn it into coasters instead. Ruthless, eh? But it worked beautifully.
I used some gorgeously soft AMH flannel for the backing and voila, I had six perfectly charming hexie coasters all finished. They were already gifted to a friend of mine who loves them and uses them on a regular basis. And that's what it's all about for me.
In case you wonder, this was not the first time I "re-purposed" something I made. You can click here to see how I turned another wall hanging into a pillow, and here to see how a pillow became a pouch. I have issues, I know :)
Hope you all have a very lovely weekend. Svetlana
