All you need to make your own are a few items you probably already have lying around in the sewing room and my sewVery Simple Fabric Coaster Tutorial:
- some small fabric pieces or scraps, batting, and a 1/4 yard or less of non-skid fabric
- rotary pinking shears (or regular pinking shears)
- cutting mat
- hexagon template (I downloaded my free template from www.patchworkposse.com)
That's it! Amazingly simple and fun to sew. I plan to keep a few sets of these on hand to give as gifts.
The non-skid fabric keeps the coaster from slipping or sliding all over the table or countertop, and the fact that there are no finished edges to fuss with makes them simple enough for even a child to sew.
It was fun playing around with different quilting options on this set, and I even tried out the free motion quilting foot to easily quilt the circular design.
Have FUN sewing!
