Wine Coaster Tutorial

Sorry for the delay in posting this!!
A few weeks ago I shared my wine coasters made using Modern Yardages's fabric

You requested, and I delivered! 
My tutorial for making these wine coasters

I used coordinating prints from Modern Yardage

- (4) 5" squares for the bottom of your coasters
- (4) 5" squares for each of your coasters (these will be the top) 
- CD (old one that might get ruined!)
- pen
- iron
- sewing machine

First, figure out which prints, coordinating prints you want for each of your coasters and trace your CD onto the wrong side of your fabric. Since I used 2 colors for each coaster I traced 2 onto each fabric.

Go ahead and cut them all out, including your bottom pieces

Next, your going to use your iron to fold all of the top pieces in half.
Leave the bottom pieces off to the side for now.

Now, we're going to start assembling your coasters.
Take your bottom coaster piece and one halved fabric and place it on the bottom..

You're going to continue adding pieces in a clockwise motion

When you get to this point, I tend to pin where my left and right (pink) pieces meet

Now, for the last piece you're going to lift the first piece and put it under 

Continue to pin all the intersections
(it will help later when sewing to avoid shifting)

You're going to sew around the edges using a 1/4" seam allowance

Once you get all the way around, turn the coaster inside out and use your fingers to push out the seams

Voila! One down, however many more to go till you get your set!

These make a great housewarming gift for summer barbecues!

Thanks again to Modern Yardage for the gorgeous fabrics!
