Casual and Cute Blue-Jean Coasters

These no-sew coasters are Free and Easy, and get lots of compliments. Kids could easily make sets of these to give as gifts. I have even sold these in craft fairs for charity.
Time: 5 Minutes Cost: $0 Difficulty: Easy

    Love this. These will work perfectly in my RV! BTW My grandmother was born is Racine and her father was the first doctor in Racine when they immigrated from Denmark. We finally made it to Racine with our RV last summer and enjoyed your city so much.
