Easy Fabric Hexagon Coasters

Fabric Coaster tutorial with a free template!

My husband is a card carrying member of the coaster police, which is fine… if you don’t only have stone coasters, a glass coffee table… and a 1 year old. Over the past few weeks there has been a lot of me moving the coasters out of her reach, and the C.P. (Coaster Police) putting them back only to have to stop the 1 year old from banging them on the coffee table. Something had to change, the easy solution fabric coasters!

These coasters are so quick and easy, a whole set could probably be made from start to finish in about an hour.

DIY Pincushions

I don’t know if I need as many pincushions as I would like to make, but they are seriously addicting.

Use Those Fabric Scraps!

I’m horrible at sewing, but I love shopping for fabric. I also love grabbing cute fat quarters at the last minute when I’m fabric shopping. It’s a great way to feed your stash when you don’t have a specific project in mind. If you do sew quite a bit, chances are you have some scrap fabric lying around because it is often way too painful to throw pretty fabric away. Here are some wonderful projects for hoarders of scrap fabric and fat quarters.
