You will need:

- Some scrap pieces of fabric (I have mixed and matched mine)

- A cardboard template 11x11 cm

- Felt or a thick fabric (for the middle)

- A needle & thread

- Pins

- Pencil

- Scissors

- I have used my sewing machine to stitch these but you can hand stitch them if you prefer & have enough patience!

1: Start by using your cardboard template to cut out squares of fabric. You will need two squares of fabric for each coaster.

-Once you have you have cut out your main fabrics, trim your cardboard template down to 10x10 cm & use it to cut your squares of felt (you will need one square of felt per coaster)

-I am making four coasters so I have cut 8 squares of fabric & four squares of felt.

2: place a square of felt on the wrong side of ONE piece of fabric and use a tacking stitch in each corner to hold this in place. This will help when turning your fabric thru later.
