Holiday Coasters

I made some reversible holiday coasters for my etsy shop today. Not only are they reversible (Thanksgiving on one side, Christmas on another), they're also scented!! Nutmeg on the Thanksgiving side and cinnamon on the Christmas side! You can see them in my coaster section:
I also have two more styles I want to make but I want to see if I can find peppermint scent first.

WIP (works in progress)

Just an update on what I'm working on. Firstly, I have a diaper bag I'm in the process of making for my niece for a friend of hers. I'm very late with this project. She wanted it by the middle of this month and I just started it this weekend. I was just so busy with my new job, etc that I hadn't had time time to get to it. But I did manage to get it cut out, prepped, and got some of it sewn together. I had to get more fabric for the lining (did that yesterday) so I plan on definitely working on it this weekend.

I'm also planning on making reversible holiday coasters for Thanksgiving and Christmas. I had some really cute fabrics for those. I managed to get them cut out today while watching "Wife Swap" on TV this afternoon. There will be four different coasters (12 of each one). I hope these sell well as they're so cute when finished! I plan on putting some on my etsy site and maybe sending some to my other niece's massage shop.

I did manage to get a package sent to my niece's massage shop today that included Halloween bags (the same ones I posted here), glasses cases, checkbook covers, a wallet, and a purse. Hopefully they'll do well in her shop.

So, that's the latest Sassy news!! Will post pictures of the diaper bag when finished.

I found some beautiful Moda 5" charm packs at the quilt shop yesterday, so I decided to buy a pack. What a wonderful collection! There were a total of 45 fall and Halloween prints and solids! So, I brought them home and had to decide what to do with them. I made coasters! With all the fun prints to choose from, I made them reversible. You can find them in my etsy shop in the "Coasters" category.
