Batting – 4 – 5″ x 5″ squares (great to use up your scrap batting left over from another project)
Gather all your ingredients.
Pick out two coordinating charm squares for each coaster.
From your scrap batting, cut one 5″ x 5″ square for each coaster.
Put two fabric squares right sides together and then align on top of a piece of batting.
Sew a 1/4″ seam around the coaster, leaving about 2-3″ opening so you can turn the coaster right side out.
Clip the corners of the coaster before turning right side out so there is no bunching in the corners.
Turn the coaster right side out and press. Stitch a 1/8″ seam around all four edges of the coaster. This will close off the opening… no need to whip stitch closed.
Quilt the coaster as desired.
This next step is optional. Determine what letters you want to place on each of the coasters. If you want to spell out a word that is shorter or longer than shown, then simply make the number of coasters needed to spell your word.
Place a little bit of the fabric paint on a paper plate and stamp into paint until covered. Gently stamp the letter onto the coaster and remove. Set aside to let dry.
Coasters make great personalized gifts and pair up perfectly with the Travel Mug.
