Teapot mat and cup coasters

I am so happy that I can finally show you this set! I made these for my sister as it was her birthday last month. My sister really loves her teapots and cups of tea, so I thought it would be ideal to make a teapot mat and 4 cup coasters to go with it! I made them with her favourite colours mustard and grey, and she loves them!


Pattern : I improvised it myself with some inspiration from pinterest.
Yarn: Drops Paris (Mustard and Dark Grey)
Hook : 5mm

It is so good not to have to keep them a secret anymore since I gave her them last weekend! I am tempted to make some of these for myself around the house to use up the Drops Paris stash that I have. 

Take care!

  2. Hazel what a really lovely present. I love receiving presents that have been hand made as I know thought has really gone into it.
    As for the coasters I think they are great, I made myself two awhile ago from the first crochet magazine I bought, but seeing yours I'm tempted to make some more.

  4. Hi Hazel, I saw your comment on pinterest. Thank you! I was wondering why I didn't get any. I will try to fix it... MAde some changes, evidently wrong changes.
    BTW your coasters look very pretty. You are really evolving your crochet.
