If you want to dip your toe into traditional pojagi, but you are nervous about committing to a large project, coasters are the perfect solution.
They are 4″ square, so it’s just the right size for your favourite mug.
A set of them would make a great gift.
They can be made with either linen or ramie fabric and are stitched with perle cotton thread.
Using linen and perle cotton is not as difficult as silk fabric and thread, since it is easier to see and manipulate. This is great if you are just learning a new technique.
Each one uses only a tiny bit of fabric, so it isn’t a big investment.
In my shop you can get the pattern alone or as part of a kit with fabric and thread. It’s also available at Etsy.
Add a smile to your next cup of coffee with this little piece of stitching.
