As promised, here is the pattern. Not sure where I got it, but here goes. Started with 6 5inch squares of fabric, and 1 square of batting( you can use flannel, or denim)
This is the fabric I chose.
I decided to use an orange for the bottom of the coaster and the white is not going to be seen. Place the Orange on the Top face down, batting on top, and then the orange on top. The opposite of the picture below.
Fold the other 4 fabrics in half, and press. Now place each folded fabric on top of the orange and laying it like you would a closed box top.
Make sure the raw edges are on the outside edge of the square. Sew around the edges. I sewed it in black so you can see the stitching..
Trim the corners and now you are ready to turn it right side out. Reach into the center opening and turn…I use a skewer to poke into the corners to straighten it out. You are ready to enjoy it now.
I have been using a lot of scrap fabric and batting for these projects Doesn’t take much time at all. I hope this makes sense. If not let me know.
