Owl Coasters. I have just finished these two coasters. I have not yet dampened them to dissolve the Washaway. The Lacey one is the base from a Christmas coaster from DollarStitch obtained years ago and I have no idea where the base from the other came from but I am not happy with it as it is too dense. The Owl is from Which one do you like the best?

They are both very nice but if i had to choose i'd pick the scallop egde one, maybe if the other was a bit bigger it looks cramped..

Both coaster are beautiful

You have done a great job and I like the owl.
To answer your question
The circle looks most like a coaster to me, but the other looks more decorative. It is too bad the circle is too dense to sit flat. Maybe you could use a heavier stabilizer or double up the one you are using -- if you decide to use the circle for your coasters.

It will be OK when I have wast the Washaway out and press it with an iron

Both are great, but I like the bottom one. It looks like an owl in a cloud.

by sewilso 21 May 2013

I like both, the top is more tailored and formal and the bottom is more frilly I think, but both are equally charming. Very nice!!!

I like them both: the round one because it looks the size and shape of a coaster, the larger one because it looks brighter. The size and shape makes it perfect to use as both a coaster and a small doily.

They are both made with the same threads. I was surprised how much they shrank when dampening them.

Of course I like the lacey one, swirls, scallops and swags, The 3 s's. Beautiful owl, Isn't it FSL on it's own?

Yes it is but I have someone wanted coasters with an owl.

I am so glad to know that it is not too thick, did you have to adjust the pattern by ommitting any stitches?
