Flower and Lace Coasters

You keep calm. . .
and I'll drink coffee.

Hi, friends!
Need a coaster for your coffee mug?
Or maybe something to set your tea cup on?
Well, these charming little coasters will do the trick.
And the best thing
is that you can whip up a set in no time.

Here is what you will need:

scrap fabric, or better yet, charm squares
fusible fleece
crocheted lace trim
mini silk roses

For one coaster you will need two 5-inch squares
and one square of fusible fleece that measures 4.5-inches.
Iron on the fusible fleece to the back side
of the front square.
Does that make sense?

Sew a strip of lace to the front square.

Place the two squares with right sides together
and sew along all four edges with a 1/4-inch seam allowance.
Leave a small opening.
Also, trim the corners,
but be careful you don't snip your seam.

Pull the coaster right side out of the hole
and press with a hot iron.
Top stitch along all four edges.

For the fabric flower
cut a strip of fabric that is 1.5 x 8-inches and fold in half.
Sew a gathering stitch along the raw edge
and gently pull to create a flower.
Sew the two ends together.
Apply a bit of hot glue to the flower
and press onto the top of the lace.
Add a silk rose to the center.

Heart warming tea
on a cold rainy day.

It's always a pleasure to read your comments.
I appreciate the time you take in visiting.
Forgive me for not being around, dear friends,
but I have been absent from blogging for good reasons.
I will tell you more about it next week.

Love and hugs to you!

Just love these. Thank you for sharing how to make them. I know you've had them in your shop and have been in love with them since day one. I also love the pretty fabric flowers. I like to make them for my cards sometimes. How pretty these coasters would be for a tea party or when company sits at the table! I hope all is well there. I look forward to your weekly posts!

Why, a pretty teacup filled with ambrosial tea would look just right sitting on your pretty tea coasters, Stephanie. Ooh...love the pretty purple and yellow flower fabric peeking out.

Your coasters are so pretty, Stephanie. You did a wonderful job on them. I like the fact that the color is simple, and goes with every cup we choose. You know, I still have the coaster that you sent me, and I cherish that so much. I laughed when you said, you be calm...and I'll drink coffee hehehe. That is totally me. : )

I hope your February days have been beautiful ones. Have a pleasant weekend.

So delicate and pretty, Stephanie, and even my sadly basic sewing machine skills could handle them. Thanks for sharing!

Magpie's Mumblings said...

Oh so pretty Stephanie! I know me though - I'd slop coffee on them the first time I used them!
