  1. The coasters are beautiful! I always like the colors you use. Can I use embroidery cotton floss for them?
    We don't get proper cotton yarn here...

    1. Thanks so much! Yes you can, but you will probably will have do do more rounds because the floss will make them considerably smaller...hope that helps!
