Hand woven poetry coasters
Cozy up your tea time or kick off your cocktail hour with a fresh set of creative coasters. These soft, handwoven coasters are ~4x4 inches square, perfect for your coffee table, bar, or kitchen nook.
Poetry coasters, sold as a set of four, are sewn with themed words that work equally well singly and together.
Each set of poetry coasters is handmade, handsewn, and one of a kind. Small errors may be present, and I encourage you to embrace imperfection as part of these handmade items' one-of-a-kind nature.
As in most of my pieces, I like to focus using on found materials and making new useful items out of leftovers. Yarn used for weaving coasters is acrylic (variation sand), wool (grape), or a combination of fibers (gray).
Beer Mug coasters, set of 4: gold and peach thread, hand sewn into letters on gray handwoven coasters, use wordplay and constraint-based writing to present a short poem about beer. The words read as follows: "beer mug," "belch mural," "belle muse, " "belly music." Set is one of a kind.
Tea Time coasters, set of 4: shades of gold thread, hand sewn into letters on gray handwoven coasters, use wordplay and constraint-based writing to present a short poem about tea. The words read as follows: "tea time," "tease tint," "tempt toddy," "tend tome." Set is one of a kind.
Wine Glass coasters, set of 4: shades of hot pink thread, hand sewn into letters on grape handwoven coasters, use wordplay and constraint-based writing to present a short poem about wine. The words read as follows: "wine glass," "wish globe," "witch glow," "woe glue." Set is one of a kind.
Fox Paws coasters, set of 2: burgundy thread, hand sewn into letters on variation sand coasters, uses word play and puns to create a four word poem. The words read as follows: "fox paws," "faux paws." Set is one of a kind.
Your words, set of 2: I will hand stitch letters to create your own personalized coasters. See examples for ideas. You may choose 1-2 words on each coaster, 3-5 letters each. If you'd like a heart, let me know <3. Please share words in the notes and indicate any color preference for coaster or words. If not noted, personalized set of two will be variation sand coasters with dark blue words. Note: these are made to order, so allow extra time for completion.
Note: coasters are woven and sewn in a cat-friendly household. Coasters are hand-washable.
