Item details


Put those pretty fabric scraps to work using this simple PDF SEWING PATTERN to make machine washable patchwork coasters.

Making coasters is a great way to get started with patchwork. You can practice selecting prints and colors while making a useful item.

The finished coasters can be used for a variety of purposes--drink coasters, under house plants, in the kitchen under bottles that tend to leak or leave rust rings in your cupboards, put them under pet dishes to make it harder for them to knock them over, etc.

These cotton fabric and batting coasters 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 will help improve your cutting skills.

The edges of these coasters aren't bound, which saves you a ton of time and frustration. The way these are put together will also help give you neat edges and a fairly round circle.

Templates for 8 sizes of circles are included so you can make a variety of coasters for different uses. 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 paper and ink friendly 11-pages. There are 5-pages text (in English) with color photos + 6-pages of black & white circle templates.

Advanced Beginner Sewing Pattern: You have completed a few sewing projects, sewn from a pattern before and/or taken a basic sewing class.

Approximate Finished Dimensions: Dimensions vary according to the size template you choose to use. Circle templates for 8-sizes are included: 4", 4.5", 5", 5.5", 6", 6.5", 7", 7.25".

Supplies (Materials You Provide):
• Cotton fabric scraps
• Cotton batting
• Basic sewing tools/notions (machine, thread, etc.)

Sew It & Sell It: Coasters made using this pattern can be sold in your own online store, local boutiques, craft fairs, etc. Please offer Michelle Patterns design credit in written descriptions.
