I LOVE these Coasters!

These are so easy to make and you can use scraps.  This is another simple project your students can make as gifts for any holiday or a birthday gift for a loved one.  I am pre-cutting up a bunch for my students to make as family gifts for Valentines Day. They sew up super quick!

I use cotton batting instead of polyester so the soak up the moisture on cups.

Pattern:   Draw a heart shape larger than the bottom of the biggest cup!  You can also look on line for heart shape cut outs or printable if you are not comfortable drawing one.     I like to make 4 – 6 coasters in a set.

Supplies Needed:

Heart shaped pattern

Fabric

Thin cotton batting

Contrasting thread

Scissors

Pinking shears

Cut out 2 hearts and 1 batting for each coaster. 

Sandwich the batting between the wrong sides of fabric.

Topstitch 1/2″ around hearts.  Use pinking shears around edge to trim.

SEW CUTE!  SEW FAST! SEW EASY!
