In thinking of ways to bring in some more spending money, she's been thinking a lot lately about teaching crochet classes. It's something she could do a few nights or weekends a month without sacrificing much family time.
Tonight she is meeting with a yarn store to propose some class ideas, and for the proposal she created a simple coaster pattern.
They are done in tapestry crochet and can easily be completed (or mostly completed) during a two-hour crochet class.
UPDATE: Our Tapestry Crochet class is now available in our new ebook, Love Coasters: An Introduction to Tapestry Crochet. The book contains our entire tapestry crochet series in a convenient PDF, the pattern for the Love Coasters, and graph paper formatted especially to the shape of crochet stitches.
