Crochet coasters...

Once I saw Ellen's crochet pretties, I really wanted to make them too! I found the pattern via her pin and gave it a try! What amazed me the most about this motif, was the fact that the pattern was originally printed in a book of the year 1893!!

                                                                 

                                                                 
I also made a board on pinterest about pattern instructions I'll collect, for my future projects!!
You can follow me and suggest me your ideas!! :-)

  1. Hi Angeliki, thanks for stopping by my corner of the world. :) I've seen this coaster pattern before and have it bookmarked to make at a later date. Of course, I've got tons of projects bookmarked. So much I want to do, so little time. Hope you are having a great day! Tammy

  12. I love these coasters - especially that they came from the 1800's! I have several vintage patterns I've found in thrift stores. Sometimes the language can be difficult, but once you get past that they're terrific! I like your blog. The way it's laid out is easy to follow. I also like that you include the places where you post. Since I crochet I'm always happy to meet a fellow crocheter! Nicely done.

  15. I have been searching the web for the pattern for these coasters and the link that everyone references no longer has the pattern listed. Would you be willing to share this free pattern with me? I love the pattern and am really wanting to make coasters!

    Thank you so much!
