I drink tea all day long. My favorite non-caffeinated version is Almond Coconut Macaron Rooibos Tea from the Republic of Tea, and I probably average 3 bags a day. For a sweeter and more caffeinated kick, I’m all about PG Tips and French vanilla creamer. This all means that I use coasters A LOT. We have had a lot of cute coaster sets, but the ones we’ve had lately are either plastic or laminated or cork, and sometimes they stick to the bottom of my cups and then come clattering off at some annoying point in time. I then started hunting for felt coasters.
I know I KNOW. I could just crochet myself some coasters, but sometimes I just feel like shopping and supporting other handmade artists, too! That’s how I found Dandyrions and her adorable bear coasters. They come on all colors, and some have accessories, like eyeglasses, or, a fish in the mouth. I can’t wait for my set to come in and cuddle all my tea mugs!
Here are some other coasters that I liked as well on Etsy.
I very nearly bought this set of bally coasters before finding the bears. These are by NomiMakes.
I also liked the colors and funky shapes of these guys from BeansAndThreads.
And finally, you can’t go wrong with some crocheted coasters in this house. These cheery fruits are from Portuli.
OOOOOH I just thought of a cute pattern for coasters involving sparkle yarn…. stay tuned!
