Sashiko coasters

Last week I told you about the class I attended to learn sashiko stitching, and this week I'm ready to show off the finished coasters!
As the backing for the coasters I chose one of the fabrics I brought back from Japan, a brightly coloured and patterned fabric.
I cut the Japanese fabric and placed it and the embroidery right sides together, stitched around most of the way, and clipped the corners. I then turned it out the right way, ironed, and finally top-stitched around the edge.

They're really too pretty for everyday use as coasters, but I might use them when making green tea, or for sitting ornaments on.
