Want some coasters? But have you thought of making a few with raffia as with so little you can make so many. Raffia is one exciting material that I have been waiting for long to work with it and making a 4 coaster and teapot set has given me the confidence to undertake advance projects in future as it is that easy once you get the hang of it.
Raffia fibre come in all kind of colors heck I even have a golden one in my stash, and this is only the natural raffia and the dyed pink that I have used for this project. Your possiblities are endless!
Let’s see how we can recreate the coasters and what all we will need.
- Raffia natural 50g X 2
- Raffia pink 50g
Gather 10 pieces of natural raffia along with 3 strands of pink ones in a bundle to begin. You neither want them too thick nor too thin.
Hold on to the bundle with your thumb 1 1/2 inch from the raffia ending and begin wrapping with your pink strands anti-clock wise like so.
