Fabric Coasters

 

Attention Scrap Collectors:

 

Another scrappy project. Yup, just cleaning out that scrap bin today. Want to join me?

 

You’ll Need:

  • 2 pieces of cotton fabric, 4.5 x 4.5 inches
  • 1 piece of fleece, 4 x 4 inches
  • 1 piece of double sided fusible web, 4 x 4 inches
  • Sewing machine, thread, scissors, etc.
 
Measure and cut out all of your pieces.

 

Then sew your 2 pieces of cotton together, with right sides together, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Make sure and leave about a 2 inch opening on one side.

 

Then attach your fleece to your cotton by using the web in between. Iron it all in place. Trim your corners.

 

Turn right side out, poke out your corners, and tuck in the opening edges. Iron flat. Then stitch all the way around the entire coaster, making sure to secure the opening shut.

 

Now make a few more and toss on them on your coffee table or end tables.

 

Nice and cheery.

    Sew easy and so practical! Love your tutorial. What fabric is that that you used?

    Tasha – No, these dimensions aren't a fat quarter. A fat quarter is usually 18 x 22 inches (a quarter of a yard) and then they fold it up to about this size. So you could make several coasters with one fat quarter. Hope that helps.

    Oh, and this fabric is from Hobby Lobby. I don't even know the name but Hobby Lobby fabric is exclusively sold there and can't be ordered on line. Darn.

    I'm having a hard time finding this double sided fusible web that can be cut into a square. All I can find are the strips. Can I use fusible interfacing? Or the strips of fusible web?

    My sister was looking for fabric coasters and could not find them. I found this website and am very excited that I can make them for her for Christmas. I’m a novice sewer and love finding new projects that I can try and complete! Thank you for posting this project along with the step by steps.

    Can fleece be substituted with felt?

    I just made one coaster using Fusi-Boo (it’s a bamboo and cotton blend batting which is fusible). It turned out great! :) Thank you very much for the tutorial.
