If you're like me and the word "hostess" makes you immediately think of Twinkies (mmm...) or chocolate covered cupcakes with white icing drizzled into perfect swirls (ooooh...) then this post is for you! Today we're learning how to make a fabulous hostess gift! That is, a gift to take to a hostess! Now we're all on the same page. I think that when it comes to a hostess gift, a personal touch is always nice. Today Morgan is showing us how to make fabric coasters using scraps out of your stash! They will look great on your own table or wrapped up to give to your favorite hostess! Here's Morgan with our free Fabric Coaster tutorial:
You will need two 5"x 5" scraps of fabric and one 4.25" x 4.25" square of fusible interfacing, per coaster. The thicker the interfacing the better and you can also use fusible fleece.
To get started you will fuse your interfacing to the back side of one of the scraps of fabric.
With right sides of fabric now together, sew along all four sides leaving a one inch gap.
Flip right side out and pin the opening closed. Topstitch along all 4 sides.
