Yakity Yak Don't talk back!

Are you puzzled by my blog title?  For those of you who don't know that is a song by The Coasters.  I grew up listening to all types of music  from The coasters to The Doors to Willie Nelson.  My parents taste in music is pretty eclectic (and now mine is too!). I know the most random songs.   Now what does this have to do with crafts?  Well I made these (the coffee too)...

and they made me think of The Coasters and then I started singing the songs :-) Yes...that is how my crazy mind works.  The song is now stuck in my head and maybe yours now too.   "Just put on your coat and hat and walk yourself to the laundromat.  And when your finished doing that..." Sorry.

But back to the coasters.  I saw how to make them on A Pretty Cool Life.  Recognize the fabric?  It's what I used for my Janey bird pillow.  I had some scraps and thought they would work great for makings some coasters.  If you want to find out how I did it click here.  

Here's a picture of the back of them.  I used the same fabric that I used to back my pillow.

They are just the right size for my jumbo cup of coffee in the morning.  

Does anyone else think about how tired they will be in the morning and look forward to having coffee? Or is it just me? :-)

Linking up to these awesome parties!!

  1. i do know that song! and i look forward to my morning coffee just as much as i look forward to evening wine... what does that say about me? ;)

  2. Now I'm going to have that song in my head all day! GRRR!

    Anyway, super cute! Love them!

  3. I've always wanted to try to make these!

    This week is my blog anniversary and I'm hosting a week's worth of great giveaways. Feel free to stop by if you'd like!

  4. They're gorgeous fabrics! I'm off to check out your pillow next. And I know that song, but I didn't know it was by the Coasters!

  5. Oh, yes,, I look forward to my morning coffee! Very much so! Beautiful coasters, great job! Happy Fabric Tuesday to you :)

  6. these look great and would make such a great gift idea.

  7. Those are adorable! Not much can make me look forward to my morning coffee more, but I think those just may do it.

  8. Love that song and the coasters! I don't know where I would be without my morning coffee... LOL

    Jennifer :)

  9. They're lovely!! I recently made a set of coasters and made the mistake of binding them traditionally... ouch! lol. Yours look great and certainly not all the pain of all that hand stitching! :)

  10. The coasters are great! I need to make some with my scraps.

  11. I love this! I think I will be making some of these--now that my kids like tossing everything off the tables--our {breakable} coasters have been put away--these would be toss-proof! Perfect!

  12. Your coasters are so cute Andi! Aren't they a fun project? I actually made one back when I first saw the direction in Martha but I never got around to making any more! And, I'm totally with you on the coffee!


Connecting with people is one reason I love blogging. So bring on the comments and questions, they make my day! I really appreciate you taking the time to stop by and say "hello!"
