Hi, I am Georgina Cook! I blog because I relish in "sharing what I love". While there are so many things in life that I love (Cath Kidston, Galaxy chocolate, my husband's eyes, eBay, plucking my eyebrows (i just do...) , and Christmas morning), this blog will focus on my greater passions: crafting, going cool places with my hubby, shopping, decorating and every day life lessons.

No Sew Pleated Coaster

Over at See Kate Sew there is an event called 'The Pleated Weeks'. So I made this tutorial for over there!
Through my head I was just thinking ruffles ruffles ruffles... imagining pleats on everything in my home. Some of the pictures were actually pretty discusting... pleats on my desk, pleats on my bath (?!), pleats on my shelves... you get the picture. I don't think my Arron would be too happy to come home to that. So something subtle but pretty, something quick, and something cheap. I have these coasters we got for our wedding... not the prettiest things I have ever seen... but being one to not throw anything away... I thought I could maybe maaaaake them look pretty.
So here's how I made them look pretty!! 

You will need:
Coasters (or use strong cardboard)
Glue gun

Get a piece of fabric about 3 times as long as your coaster and the same width of it. 
Ruffle it up, and at each ruffle put 3 dabs of glue on it otherwise you get gapes. I did really neat close together ruffles, in the picture i have done big fat ones because small ones wouldnt hold whilst i held my camera!!!

After you have done your row, just tuck it over the coaster. and glue it down.

Now you have a lovely looking coaster!!
