Covered Clothesline Coaster

I continue to be amused by covering clothesline with strips of fabric and zig-zagging the rows together. I have made many bags, but lately I have made round coils, opening up new items. The first thing I made was a coaster. I used Sweetwater's Hometown fabric line. The white fabric just around the red center fabric has line after line of names of towns. Quite by remarkable coincidence as I was wrapping the town fabric around the clothesline, I spotted "Chippewa Falls". If you look very closely, at almost the 12o'clock position of the first white row, you can see my hometown's name. How fun is that? Jerilynn

  1. Way fun! So, are you covering up the back to hide the raw edges, or doing a different technique?
