It is time for a quick and easy sew-a-long with Sheila Wong! Every year our scrap fabric pile hits a level that we gotta do something about it. So this year we are making reversible coasters.
To make one coaster you will need 2 pieces of fabric that are 5" x 5" in dimension. If you would like the coaster to be reversible, choose two different fabric prints. 100% cotton works best.
With right sides of fabric facing, pin and stitch a box all the way around 4 edges. Leave an opening on one side approx 2" in width.
Back stitch at the beginning and end of your stitch line to secure the opening while flipping it inside out tomorrow. Feel free to mark your corner pivot points and use a smaller stitch length in the corners for strength.
Remove bulk by trimming excess at corners. Stay approx 1/8" away from stitch-line (pivot point).
Flip out and press flat. Use a point turner to help bring out corners.
Top stitch around square to close. Feel free to do a double top stitch.
How many are you making? We ended up making 2 dozen with all our scrap bits of fabric. Tag us in a pic on Instagram to show us your final coasters.
