Decagon Motif & Coaster
Designed By Julie A. Bolduc
What a name! It is according to my Webster's Dictionary a "plane figure with 10 sides and 10 angles. That is the reason for the name. This motif would be best used as an embelishment on a vest, or some other project. I used a very small ball of thread my MIL gave to me years ago and I am not sure what it is. I think it may be rayon but I am not sure. It shimmers and is soft and does not feel like cotton. If you have any ideas, email me with your thoughts on this. Of course you can make this motif with cotton thread if you like.
