Gather Your Materials:

  • Fabric: Two –  5” x 5” piece in Organic Christmas prints, tartan, or any fabric of your choice that captures the festive spirit.
  • 4 Ounce Wadding: Another 5” x 5” piece will be perfect.
  • Sewing Machine: If you don’t have one, no worries! You can hand sew this project too.
  • Scissors: Sharp ones, to ensure precise cuts.

Step-by-Step Crafting Guide:

  1. Prepping Your Fabric: Start by cutting two squares from your chosen fabric, each measuring 5.5”.
  2. Wadding Squares: Using your scissors, cut a 5” square from the wadding.
  3. Laying the Foundations: Place one of your fabric squares with the right side facing up.
  4. Stacking Up: Next, place the second fabric square on top, but this time with the right side facing down.
  5. Wadding Time: Now, place your two wadding squares on top, ensuring they are lined up evenly with the fabric squares.
  6. Sewing Begins: Using your sewing machine or hand sewing skills, sew around the edges of your coaster, but leave one side open. This gap will be essential for our next steps.
  7. Trimming: For a neater finish, trim the corners and any excess seam allowance. This step is optional but can add a professional touch to your coaster.
  8. The Reveal: Carefully turn your coaster inside out through the open side, and marvel at your creation taking shape!
  9. Finishing Touches: Sew up the open side, and voilà, your Christmas coaster is ready to grace your table.
