Reverse applique Denim coasters
As a crafter I seem to have hoarding tendencies towards crafts supplies and scrap pieces of fabric (ah I finally admitted it). Isn't that the first step to recovery? Ha Ha anyways back to what I was saying. So because of this I have plenty of pieces of denim laying around that are just waiting to be used. I'm saving the larger pieces for a quilt later down the road, but I figured the smaller pieces would be great for projects like these.
I love the way the denim looks when it's frayed on the edges so I just top stitched the two pieces together so that the edges would fray. I used a darning foot for my sweing machine so that I could stitch around the hearts and write Love on the coasters.
These were very simple to make and lots of fun. I've made several more I just didn't manage to get photos of them. So until next time........
