Marshmallows

It's done! Ta-da! I finished the table runner this morning :)


The little extras I mentioned last time were some cute little coasters. I used Svetlana's tutorial for the basics of coaster making, but scaled mine back to 4 inch squares.


They have two layers of batting in them, which makes them wonderfully poofy! Squidging them reminds me of the texture of marshmallows... mmm... Don't worry, I haven't actually drooled over the coasters.

Here is the set in action. I'll be quite sad to let it go. Thankfully the first coaster I made wasn't perfect so I'll be keeping that one, and I made it a friend. So I have a souvenir of a project again :)



PS I had so much fun making a mini version of my header for the back of the label!

ETA: Linking up to Made By You Mondays and Manic Monday. Also table-runner tutorial is here :)
