Fabric Coasters


Attention Scrap Collectors:


Another scrappy project. Yup, just cleaning out that scrap bin today. Want to join me?


You’ll Need:

  • 2 pieces of cotton fabric, 4.5 x 4.5 inches
  • 1 piece of fleece, 4 x 4 inches
  • 1 piece of double sided fusible web, 4 x 4 inches
  • Sewing machine, thread, scissors, etc.
Measure and cut out all of your pieces.
  • Save


Then sew your 2 pieces of cotton together, with right sides together, using a 1/4 inch seam allowance. Make sure and leave about a 2 inch opening on one side.


Then attach your fleece to your cotton by using the web in between. Iron it all in place. Trim your corners.


Turn right side out, poke out your corners, and tuck in the opening edges. Iron flat. Then stitch all the way around the entire coaster, making sure to secure the opening shut.


Now make a few more and toss on them on your coffee table or end tables.


Nice and cheery.

    I just made one coaster using Fusi-Boo (it’s a bamboo and cotton blend batting which is fusible). It turned out great! :) Thank you very much for the tutorial.

    Can fleece be substituted with felt?

  7. anonymous says:

    By fleece do you mean batting?

    My sister was looking for fabric coasters and could not find them. I found this website and am very excited that I can make them for her for Christmas. I’m a novice sewer and love finding new projects that I can try and complete! Thank you for posting this project along with the step by steps.

    I think I am going to make these as a birthday present for my mom. She loves coasters!

  13. Katie Webb says:

    I'm having a hard time finding this double sided fusible web that can be cut into a square. All I can find are the strips. Can I use fusible interfacing? Or the strips of fusible web?

  18. Michelle says:

  19. Aubrey says:

    haha i LEGIT bought that fabric yesterday at Hobby Lobby without even seeing this post. Wow. O_o That's so crazy!!! I love all the fabrics that you use :)

  20. Karin says:

    Those I really cute! Love the fabric too. I love little projects that you could whip up in a short time. So thanks for sharing!

  21. jodi says:

    Cute idea. I'm going to try this.

  22. Ashley says:

    Tasha – No, these dimensions aren't a fat quarter. A fat quarter is usually 18 x 22 inches (a quarter of a yard) and then they fold it up to about this size. So you could make several coasters with one fat quarter. Hope that helps.

    Oh, and this fabric is from Hobby Lobby. I don't even know the name but Hobby Lobby fabric is exclusively sold there and can't be ordered on line. Darn.

  23. Christina says:

    Sew easy and so practical! Love your tutorial. What fabric is that that you used?

  24. Jerolyn and Matt says:

    Cute idea! I wish I had my sewing machine! I'd love to try something easy like that! Just another project to add to the ever growing list! Thanks Ash! :)

  25. Sara says:

    I've been wanting to make some of these for awhile! Thanks!!

  26. Tasha says:

    Are the dimensions that you used the same as fat quarters?

  27. Melissa says:


  28. Meg Linberg says:

    i love that fabric! do you happen to know what it is?

  29. Erika says:

    yay! Thanks for the tutorial, I was just playing around with fabric coaster last night and not having much luck!
