This week I have an upcoming dinner party to attend and I wanted to make a special hostess gift, one that was a little more thoughtful than the typical bottle of wine. I would first like to express that I think that hostess gifts are highly underrated and often too easily forgotten. There’s nothing classier than showing your host gratitude for their hospitality and delicious meal! Plus, I also just really like dinner parties…
So, I pulled out some scraps from my embarrassingly huge collection of extra fabrics and came up with these adorable little fabric coasters.
What you need to make these Scrap Fabric Coasters:
How you make these scrap Fabric Coasters:
1. Use this pattern to trace onto your scrap fabric.
2. Cut out 10 layers of fabric and at least 1 layer of interface for each coaster.
3. Iron each piece flat.
4. Sew 10 layers together to make each coaster (I used a wide zig-zag stitch).
Tie around a cute bow, slap on a little hand-made tag and there ya go, a super adorable gift that is guaranteed to get you an invite to the next dinner party! Also a great idea for a DIY housewarming gift. If you’re worried about the edges fraying (depending on the scraps you used), try using a little FrayBlock. Just one of the many of ways to use up those old scraps. Coasters may also be really cute if done in different shapes, I’d love to see your version of these, please send me pictures of finished projects <3
