Welcome this month’s guest designer Jessica from Jessica Paz Creates. She is sharing her lovely Rainbow Plant Coaster Pattern with us!
“After I designed the Mug Nest Coaster I thought how fun it would be if I designed a larger one for my plants! So the Plant Nest Coaster was born.
With spring right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to add a cute rainbow in the clouds design to it. Since it has color changes and is worked up a little different than the Plant Nest Coaster I decided to make it an all-new pattern.

It’s one of my favorite patterns to make since it works up quickly, is a great stash buster, makes a great gift, and it isn’t just for plants! It is also super cute decor for a nursery or any tabletop decor. I even use one on our kitchen table for our paper towel holder. The best part! It’s beginner-friendly. “
