Making Something You Pinned

Recently I have started using Pinterest, and I have realised a lot of you crafty people also use it. There are so many tutorials, patterns and recipes that are on Pinterest. Having all your interesting things together in one place and visually, is simply amazing!

I am going to give myself a challenge of making something I have pinned, as I have so many things in my Crochet Ideas folder that I want to make...so I am going to make a start! Plus it means I can practice many different things too! Not just crochet but any kind of idea he he (Could also be good for christmas ideas as well).
This pattern is the first one I attempted, mainly because my sister fell in love with them and wondered if I could make them for her. So this is what I have got here.
The small coaster (cup sized coaster) is the one I got by following the pattern, although it is slightly chunky because of the wool I used but it is still pretty! The big one was me doing the pattern with a slight modification, and I got to say...I think I like it. Teapot coaster you reckon? 

For you guys that haven't been on Pinterest, it requires you to have an invite to use it so if you would like an invite (via email) let me know and I can help you out.

  2. I keep telling myself to try one new thing a day. Do you know how many patterns and recipes I've bookmarked to try? I lost count! I like the flower motif and the ruffly way you made it. Have a great day. Tammy

  3. Your coasters are lovely, and I like your modified one, how pretty! I haven't got onto pinterest yet, but have read about it a lot. I'm not sure I dare, as I already don't have enough hours in the day! I tried doing something from a picture once and I came out alright, however, I need to remember to write things down as I like it and then I can't remember how I did it!
