Quick Coasters

Feel like stitching up something really quick & pretty? How about changing up those coasters for the coffee table? I decided the glass ones I had, needed to be replaced with some bright colors and a soft touch. Take a look!

All you need are a couple of strips of fabric all measuring the same length. Stitch them together lengthwise and cut them into equal sized squares once they are pressed. I used black felt for the backing.

Sew them together face side down in a U shape. The one side should stay open so you can fold it right side out.

Once again, press. Carefully fold the open end inward and topstitch to seal it closed.
Continue with the topstitch over all your seams. (My bobbin thread was black to match the backing. Just want to remind everyone to switch that out.)
Aren't they cute?

This is what I call a great 'in between projects' project!

On another note~
Could you believe January has already come and gone??? I've got a couple more projects I'm so eager to share with you. I still can't shake this urge to learn how to quilt. I've been practicing ALOT, piecing random squares together and even triangles. It's definitely not as easy as it looks and if anything.... it's teaching me patience... more patience. I can't wait to show you all that I've worked on & more!
