Strawberry Sherbet Toffee Coaster ~
Free Crochet Pattern
I love Valentines Day and enjoy making little things to decorate my home with. I especially love changing out the coasters on the kitchen table, coffee tables, and counter tops. I have chosen to make this lacy coaster to put on the tables and counter tops. This lacy coaster makes a nice addition to your table.
Place one on your desk, night stand, kitchen table, counter top, ect. Coasters make a great hostess or house warming gift. Make them in sets of four or six. If you are like me you may have to make more than the average number. Who knows I may even make a few more items using this stitch pattern for the home, accessories, and clothing.
