Practice making patchwork, sewing circles, and selecting and matching fabric prints/colors while sewing these cute and practical fabric coasters.
These round coasters are fun to make and an excellent way to use of scraps. The finished coasters can be used for a variety of purposes around the house--drink coasters, under house plants, in the kitchen, etc. They can be machine washed/dried whenever needed.
The pattern demonstrates how to foundation piece a classic Log Cabin configuration with free hand cut fabric pieces. Cutting the pieces free hand makes it go faster and is another good way to practice and improve your sewing skills.
Templates for 8 sizes of circles are included so you can make a variety of sizes of coasters. Circle start at 4" and go up to 7.25" in diameter. The templates are also good to have on hand for other projects--no more searching for a small/medium circular object to trace!
This document is a printer and ink friendly 11 pages - 5 pages text with color photos + 6 pages of black & white circle templates.
I'm interested in all sorts of arts and crafts, but these days I stick to sewing, with the occasional outburst of embroidery. Someday I'd like to learn to knit and/or crochet, but for now I'm just about being buried alive in fabric! Adding more supplies is probably not a good idea...
