DIY Fabric Coasters

10-Minute Fabric Wine Coaster Instructions:

  1. Choose five squares that complement each other. Put one of your squares aside because that will be the backing of your coaster.

  2. Fold your other four squares in half with wrong sides facing each other, and press them with your iron.

    Note: Alternatively, you can pin the fabric pieces in half.

  3. Lay one of your folded pieces of fabric down.

    Lay down another one at a 90-degree angle over one side of the first.

    Lay the next one on top going the same direction as your first one over the bottom half of the second.

    For the last one, lay it over the most recent piece of fabric at a 90-degree angle but underneath the first fabric you laid down.

    Note: Take a look at the images below to help visualize how you will lay down your pieces. Make sure the pieces are tight and the folds meet at the center.

  4. Place your backing fabric right side down over the square you just created.

    Pin it to hold.

    Sew all the way around the four sides but leave an opening (approximately 2-1/2 inches) in the middle of the fourth side.

    Clip your corners diagonally, turn it right side out, and give it a quick press to finish.

    Notes: When all the fabric pieces are folded, the "right sides" are facing some of the same ways, which can look incorrect but isn't.

    Even though sewists usually sew with the edge on the right side of the sewing foot, this project is so small that you may want to sew with the seam edge on the left.

  5. Optional: 
    Place some cotton batting in the opening and wiggle it in so that the corners line up. This can add an extra layer of protection and absorbancy. 

  6. Hand whip stitch your opening closed and tack stitch the middle to close it up.

    Note: You can also use a tack stitch to secure the center fold of your coaster if desired. Likewise, you can add any decorative stitches to the tops.

Oh WOW I love these adorable coasters that resemble quilting and love that they are so easy to make. This is a great way to use up those fabric stashes or even fat quarters. You can make them to match your decor or a friends. The coasters will make super gifts for anyone or make some to give away as hostess gifts or prizes. Great way to teach someone to sew too. It also has a video too. Can not wait to try it.

I've always wondered how these were made! I can't believe it's so easy. I was given a little kit for making one and I gave it away without opening it because I thought it was going to be difficult. I guess that was silly now that I see how simple the instructions are! I'll be pulling out scraps this weekend to try this out. Thanks for a great tutorial.
