coasters/mug mats

We are currently getting ready for a couple of art fairs we've decided to do this fall. The first one is the first week of October- the Fresh Art tour along the Mississippi River on the Wisconsin side. We will be setting up a booth outside of Swan Song Gallery. We have some of our things there now, but will be adding new items for the start of holiday buying. These are all examples of coasters/mug mats I have started making.
They measure 5" across, so plenty big for even the largest mug. It is an economical use of any left over wool pieces and are simply backed with felt. All handwork from beginning to end- just what I like to work on. No machine sewing so it is a completely portable project.
I'm also going to do ornaments, small pouch bags, pincushions, eyeglass cases, and appliqued flour sack towels. Lots to do!
