The Making of These Fabric Coasters
Start by cutting your fabric into 4″ squares. Cut your batting into 3-3/4″ squares.
Then make them into sandwiches. You can pin them or not, they are such a small piece that I didn't even pin them, it was easy to hold the pieces together as I guided them into my sewing machine.
Stitch around all four edges.
Then stitch both diagonals.
That's it! It seriously can't get any easier than this!
Turn them into a gift by tying ribbon around the four coasters. I recently got my hands on a new Beginner's Craft Knife from OLFA, and I was anxious to see how it would work on ribbon, especially ribbon with a bound edge and printing on it. So this was the perfect time to cut with it. It worked great and it fits perfect into your hand for precise cutting. That's the great news! The good news is that it will be available June 2020, so when you see them, be sure to grab them!
These are so easy to make and so sweet to give. As a fun gift idea, if you know someone under the weather, make a basket of these delightful coasters, some tea, a few cookies, a mug, and a can of soup. It makes such a cheerful get well soon basket!
Thank you so much for stopping by! It's such a treat to make and share ideas with you on a regular basis. These fabric coasters are so sweet and fun, I really hope you give them a try. They are also a great way to use up any scraps that you have lying around.
