Hexie Wine Coasters

These are good for more than just wine of course!  But there is something different about these coasters that makes them perfect for wine glasses.

First,  a few pictures from when I was making them.  Because of the way these are made,  what you see here is not how they will look once sewn together.

I made these for a house warming gift.  It only took a couple hours to make all six because the pieces were already cut out.  They were kits made up for Sew Crazy.

And now one after its been sewn and turned inside out.

Still not done at this point.  Still needs to be top stitched to help shape it better.

All six finished:

Here is the before picture again so you can see how they look a little different once finished:

I should have arranged them in the same order.  Oh well. 

What’s that?  You want to see why they are good for wine glasses?

Ta-da!  You can slip the coaster around the base of the wine glass,  then the coaster fits with you as you move around the room!  Suggestion though. ..make sure the glass is empty first before sliding the coaster on.
