I started by making a pattern out of paper under my coffee pot. I eyeballed it to the size I wanted. No rocket science here.
Fold your scrap fabric in half and use your paper pattern to check for the size.
Cut it out.
I also cut a piece of batting to put in the coaster for extra protection.
Sew the two pieces of fabric right sides together with the batting using a 1/4" to 1/2" seam allowance. Leave one side partially open so you can turn it right side out.
Trim the corners and then turn right side out and pin opening.
Top stitch all the way around the entire square, closing the space you just pinned.
And there you have it! A cute, practical decoration for your kitchen!
PS: Did you notice I used the leftover fabric from this project?
I will link to these parties this week!
