Strips of fabric wrapped around cotton clothesline make wonderful coasters, trivets, place mats and more. This easy process can go as big as you want, even as large as a table mat or a small rug.
Lori Baker made lovely coasters in two sizes for gifts, pairing them with mugs, hot chocolate mix and more. Learn more here.
Nancy Zieman from Nancy’s Notions created an excellent video demonstrating how to make coiled fabric projects. Once you have the process down you can play with it and make projects of various sizes.

You can use scraps cut into strips and cotton clothesline, or the supplies that Nancy suggested. Either will work nicely.
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest has featured many patterns from vendors participating in the Craftsy Marketplace, most of which have been deleted by Craftsy. It's going to take awhile for us to hunt down new sources for those patterns. In the meantime there are many links to patterns on our site that no longer work. We apologize if this article contains one or more of those links and appreciate your patience while we straighten things out. Thank you!
PLEASE NOTE: Quilting Digest does not sell or otherwise provide patterns directly. We showcase patterns and projects from various vendors, bloggers and other sources. Please make a note of where you access a pattern (the link in the yellow box toward the end of each Quilting Digest article). That way you can contact Support for that source if you have downloading problems or other issues. Thank you!
