Use up Scraps on Pretty Patchwork Coasters
Choose Between Several Sizes!
Pull out those precious scraps of your favorite fabrics for a set of patchwork coasters. This is a great opportunity to practice mixing fabrics for pleasing results while creating something useful.
Vary the sizes to create drink coasters, mats to place under house plants, mats for under pet dishes to make it harder to knock them over, and so on.
Plus, the coasters can be machine washed and dried as needed. Throw them in with the towels and hand-press them flat when they come out of the drier.
The coasters are a bit free-form, made from hand-cut strips of varying width. That just adds to their charm. Plus, there’s no binding so they finish quickly.
Templates for 8 sizes of circles are included so you can make a variety of coasters for different uses. Circles start at 4″ and go up to 7 1/4″ in diameter. You can go even bigger by using plates or other items for larger circles.
