Winter Coasters

 

Fabrics: Mistletoe collection by J.Z.W for Benartex

 

Holiday-theme coasters add a festive touch to your holiday table.

 

 

Materials:

 

 

  • 2 -- 4-1/2" squares of fabric (we fussy-cut our fabric to showcase cute designs)
  • 1 -- 4-1/2" square of batting

 

Finished coaster: 4" square

 

 

 

Assemble the Coaster:

 

1. Layer the batting, one 4-1/2" square right side up, and one 4-1/2" square right side down.

 

 

2. Sew around the layered pieces using a 1/4" seam allowance, leaving a 2" opening along one side for turning.

 

 

3. Turn the coaster right side out. Use the eraser end of a pencil to push out the corners.

 

 

4. Using a needle and thread to match fabric, hand-sew opening closed. See how to sew the opening closed here.
