Seriously, coasters are very popular and useful items to use around your home, as well as incorporate into your holiday decorations. They also make great gifts, especially when they are handmde. Thus, today, I’m happy to share some of my Favorite tutorials for Handmade Coasters. Don’t forget these are an easy, fun, fast and great last minute handmade gift idea!
The possibilities of creativity is endless when it comes to making coasters. Many designs also make for great kid friendly projects, presenting an opportunity to teach a kid to sew and make a handmade gift! Here is some inspiration I found that caught my attention:
Fish Sticks Designs has a free downloadable pattern for an easy and fast coaster that would look so cute in Christmas fabrics, novelty print fabrics and just about any fabrics you might want to use. This free pattern can be found on Craftsy.
The Fabric Mill has a tutorial that is also fun & fast, although they call it a Mug Rug (I’ve made this before as coasters, as well as larger size for hotpads).
Made by ChrissieD has a tutorial for making fabric coasters using a pre-printed panel of sweet holiday fabric.
Sew Illustrated and CT Publishing have a Free pattern which incorportes Kraft Tex in this design. If you haven’t yet created with Kraft Tex I want to encourage you to give it a try, possibly by making this sweet design.
For machine embroidery enthusiasts, Kreative Kiwi has a free downloadable ME design, but you need to create a free account (with Kreative Kiwi) to get this download link to work.
