This is a super quick, easy project that also works wonderfully for gifts! It's small, practical, and really customizable. Better yet, you can use up some of your scraps on this!
Isn't this owl adorable??? This little guy was a leftover square from a panel I bought for a different project.
For each coaster, you will need:
1 - 5" square piece of fabric for the top
1 - 5" square piece of batting
1 - 5" square piece of fabric for the back
Sandwich your layers together with the batting on the bottom, the back fabric right-side-up, and the top fabric right-side-down. Starting about an inch from one of the corners, back-stitch then sew around the perimeter using a quarter inch seam allowance. Leave about a two inch gap to flip right-side-out. Back-stitch again.
Clip the corners before flipping. This allows them to lay flat when finished.
Turn your beautiful creation right-side out. Make sure that your corners are poked out all the way. Fold in the opening and iron. Do a small top stitch around the perimeter about and eighth of an inch from the edge. This will close up your gap!
At this point you can be finished OR you could do a little fancy stitching. I chose to do a bit of straight-line quilting to dress up my owl.
That's it! You're done. I told ya it would be easy :) I plan on making a bunch of these for the holiday's.
