Coasters

Over the weekend fella and I went to a craft fair in the village and while we were wandering round I saw some coasters on one of the stalls and I was curious about how they were made so I came home and googled, as you do :)

I found several tutorials for them this was the version I'd seen at the craft fair but after a little more poking around I found this one which is done in the same way but with triangles and I think it's nicer but I'm going to try the square ones as well.

I knew I had a part used charm pack in my fabric stash that I was given a while ago and so decided that I'd use that for them and here they are :)
The one on the left is the first one and IRL it shows!  with the second one I thought a little more about how I put the triangle on the base and it's turned out much better.
After a quick press they have been in use all day and of course being fabric it means they can get chucked in the washer when the need arises


Fella has already mentioned making a set as a wedding present for his nephew so they have something to open instead of just having a voucher for the local fishing shop!

I haven't seen these before. I like this idea and I like both the ones you made.
