I love the material that was supposed to be used in this hop but it isn't yet available in Europe and I didn't want to pay the shipping bills that would have occurred if I got it from Canada so I decided to join in and use up some old coffee themed fabrics I had in my stash - I used a charm pack called Java by Moda. I have to confess that inspiration completely left me in the run up to this hop (particularly as I had got confused and thought I was also in the bird hop and had spent a while making a bucket bag only to realise I wasn't and was too late to join! doh), then I got a general idea of what I wanted to do but then lacked the enthusiasm to get going until a couple of weeks ago - so unlike me but I guess I have just been preoccupied with other things at the moment. However when I did get going I thoroughly enjoyed making these placemats:
the odd background you can see there is my London themed dining cloth!
all of the backs are like this:
I also had two long strips of fabric both with 11 coffee images on so I made these quick coasters:
which are all the same back and front apart from one of each colourway which I have just put a plain back on.
Hope you have enjoyed a nice coffee whilst visiting my blog and thank you for passing through! The other participants today are:
