New this week @ alamode...coasters

If I haven't already mentioned it, I'm working toward two big shows in December. It will be my 2nd year for both The Foundry Show and Craftland. These successful shows kept me extremely busy last year. So, I had hoped to be in front of the eight ball this year. I'm already a bit nervous as the weeks are flying by.

My goal this year was to expand upon my line of houseWARES. Adding to the decorative switch plates are now pillows and NEW coasters.

These seat belt "coasters" are actually over sized trivets. I'm struggling with the term as technically, the definition of trivet doesn't fit (these don't have 3 legs). For now, I'm calling them coasters. I trust that you'll tell me if I should simply get over it and call them trivets...won't you?

They are 8" x 8" square and made from the same reclaimed webbing I use for my bags and pillows. They are both stylish and utilitarian - great for protecting your table tops from warm dishes, and moisture while looking marvelous. I've listed a few in my Etsy shop and hope to have them on my website soon.

They currently come in 4 colors: red, black, lime, and blue. I'll also make them in checkered combinations. They are $12.00 each and will also be available in sets of 2 for $20.00.


  1. Wow, those are amazing. What a great idea!

  2. Ah, getting ready for matter how much planning goes into it, it seems like it all never gets finished...perhaps we're never supposed to get it all finished! sigh...

    Oversized coasters...hmmm
    neither name seems quite right. Do you want to play up the fact they're made from seatbelts...if so you could have a name that reflects that...table safety pads? Yikes, sounds like feminine hygiene! Seat belts for casseroles? My brain is fried...

  3. Get over it already and call them trivets! (You asked for this, remember.)

  4. KKish, I knew I could count on you! Glad you stopped by.

    Candied Fabrics, I like where you are going.
