Heartbeat Kantha Coasters



I wanted to make this coaster for a long time. I drafted the pattern and was actually thinking of doing an applique and embroidery combo. But after learning Kantha embroidery, I thought I could just use the kantha stitch and I love how this turned out. 



The materials needed (for 1 coaster) are:

1. 6 x 6 inches cotton fabric - 3 pieces
(I'm using Linen for the beige coasters and handloom ikat for the indigo one)
2. Anchor pearl (Perle) cotton no. 8  or 3 strands of embroidery yarn (I am using this for the linen one). 

This is a super-fast project and very beginner's friendly. All you have to is download the template  HERE and follow the instructions. Next, watch the video below.  (in the video I did freehand drawing using an erasable pen, but I created a template for you :).





Don't worry if your stitches are not even, it's hand-sewn, it's organic. You will get better as you go along. 
The kantha stitch is done on one layer of fabric only. If you want to do it on all through the 3 layers, be my guest! I did it on single layers, because it's easier for me :)
Feel free to experiment! 




I'll be making a few coasters for my small quilt shop. It's one of those projects that you can do while watching your fave shows or drama :)


Linen Coaster Set



If you're wondering about my photo props, the teapot mini plate I got from The House of Tea in Central Mall Delhi Aerocity a few years ago, and the mini teacups, I got them as a gift from a shop in Uji when we went in 2019. I love buying cute decorative stuff or souvenirs, most of them are useful as photo props :D. My boys always wondering, what I am going to do with all those. 

I better get going now, I have a few more coasters and bags to finish, but very little time to craft nowadays. Thank you for visiting my blog and stay safe!!

Happy Sewing, 

Elvira
