I am an ordinary, everyday, in love with textiles quilter and sewing enthusiast who loves to explore with cotton fabric, thread, and simple shapes in sewing and quilting projects. My interests have morphed from intricate, highly detailed clothing, home dec, and quilted pieces (both bed and art) to simple patterns and shapes that focus on the beauty of the fabric print more than the skill of my time-consuming piecing and construction. The patterns I share are a collection of steps used in creating the projects I loved, and include bits of teaching information where appropriate to add to your body of sewing knowledge.View all patterns by designer (8) »
LEAF-SHAPED BEVERAGE COASTER
LEVEL: PRACTICED BEGINNER
NO BINDING! NO CURVED PIECING!
Create a garden of fun by constructing set of 4 leaf-shaped beverage coasters (3 1/2" x 6") for spring, summer, fall, and winter in fabric colors reminiscent of the time of year. These little mug rugs are ideal gift-giving candidates: birthdays, Christmas,
even bridal gifts--one size fits all! This is a pattern you will use again and again. Make sets ahead to have on hand for those last minute gift giving emergencies!
No worries about sewing the top curved seams--they are joined with fusible tape, then top-stitched, creating an elegant home accessory. Want your leaf coasters a bit larger for over-sized mugs? Simply enlarge the included templates on a copy machine.
