Fabric Scrap Coasters

Welcome to the monthly Pinterest Challenge for April!  The purpose of the Pinterest Challenge is to motivate all the participants (and you too) to not just pin, but to make it happen! This month's challenge is about Mother's Day or projects geared towards the women in our lives. For this month's project I chose to make these Fabric Scrap Coasters.

This project was inspired by this Pinterest pin from The Fabric Mill Blog.

Materials:


To make 1 coaster you will need 5 - 5" squares of fabric and 1 - 5" square of thin batting. This is a great scrap buster project!


Directions:

Lay the material out as shown in the picture below. The center piece will be the back of the coaster. Lay the piece of batting under that piece.




Fold each of the side pieces in half with the folded side toward the center piece.


Then layer the side fabrics on top of the backing fabric.



Then sew around all 4 sides. Reach into the center of the layered fabric and flip the layered fabrics to the other side. Use something with a dull point to push out the corners. Press the coaster so it lays flat. For more detailed directions for this step, visit the Fabric Mill Blog

  4. Interesting. Is the batting showing in the back of the coaster?

    1. No, when you flip the folded pieces they cover the batting - it's really a pretty cool technique!
