I have a bit of an obsession with tiles. Especially Islamic, Art Nouveau & Mexican tiles. A bit like my obsession with fabric I suppose: I would (and do) hang fabrics on my walls as if they were works of art. And since tiling most of my kitchen a la Mejicana, I thought it only fitting to put the leftover tiles to good use. It's like I always say - a beautiful dress should always have a matching cushion case. In this case, a tiled kitchen should have its matching coasters. Here's how:
Get some tiles. Get some felt. Get some glue (I like UHU).
Cut felt to match tile.
Stick felt to bottom of tile using glue.
Now make a dress and use leftover fabric to make a cushion cover.
