Water Rings with Linen Coasters with Linen Coasters
Linen is an ideal choice for making coasters because it is durable and easy to clean. In fact, the texture of linen becomes more desirable after each wash. There are also plenty of color options at Fabrics-Store.com if you find yourself without any scrap fabric.
Making coasters is a great project if you are a beginner at sewing because you are only sewing a square with straight edges essentially. More experienced sewers will be able to whip this together in no time and can even add more decorative details.
For your coaster, all the materials you need are two 4 ½ inch square pieces of linen and a square of cotton baiting (or Insul-Bright) of the same size.
Sandwich the cotton baiting between the two pieces of linen. Next, quilt ¼ inch from the edge around all until all sides are sewn. That’s all there is to it! After a few minutes of sewing you are left with a beautiful and simple coaster to rest your cup on.
