Free Friday: Maple Leaf Coaster

Happy  Friday, everyone!  I hope you're all having an amazing summer.  I love this time of year.  For me, it means the season is slowing down, the air starts feeling a little cooler, and the crickets are singing.  Autumn is right around the corner, and although I love and will miss summer, I adore fall and can't wait for it to be here.

So because I'm feeling so excited about autumn, I decided to make an autumn pattern to share with you all!  I hope this is a good sign that I'll be able to get back into my designs again now that summer is slowing down!

Maple Leaf Coaster

Skill Level:



  • 7-count plastic canvas
  • Three colors yarn: White, a leaf color, and a a color slightly darker than leaf color
  • Craft Felt
  • Hot glue
  • #16 plastic canvas needle


  1. Cut and stitch plastic canvas according to graphs.
  2. Overcast edge of coasters with yarn that is the same color but slightly darker than the leaf color.
  3. Cut out one piece of felt for each coaster, using coasters as a guide. Trim 1/8 of an inch around all sides. Use hot glue to attach to back of coasters.

Hope you all have a great weekend!

Quilted Tissue Box Cover

Hi guys, happy August!  I'm still kicking, even though I've been very quiet all summer.  It turns out life has gotten very busy and I just haven't had the time or energy to work on my designs, and I apologize for that.  I will be back though, I promise! 

And look, I even managed to get a new pattern made and put up on Etsy!

I need to get going, though.  I have several pounds of tomatoes that need canned.  Catch you later, when life slows down a bit!
