Fit for a Princess

My #craftyvalentineswap partner listed pink and Disney as two of her loves on her survey.

Therefore I give you the Princess Coasters:

I fussy cut the faces from a print I found at JoAnn's and then made some hand-drawn paper piecing templates for the wonky star part.  It may seem silly to draw up templates for something as simple as wonky stars, but if I can't seem to get them wonky enough on my own.  

My first instinct was to use the black as the background and the colors as the star points but I decided the faces needed the black next to them to give them more definition.  They have minimal quilting and the black binding was done by machine.
