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).

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.
