These Christmas Coasters Are Super Fun To Make.
Add these Merry coasters to your holiday decor. They’re functional, and you can have them ready made in time for Christmas Eve. Although they are great as a resting place for your steaming cup of coffee, tea, or hot chocolate, they work especially well for ice cold drinks.
Stitch up using left over holiday fabric. Designed for fusible machine applique but can certainly be adapted to use pieced fabric blocks or any “orphan” designs you have lying around. The pattern provides templates for holly leaves and berries and Santa’s sleigh bells, the coasters are great fun to put together. Get the kids involved cutting out strips for Santa’s belt, and the holiday wrap ribbon.
Fusible applique make the project really quick. Then place your designs on a variety of fabrics to see which one you like the best. Fuse your completed designs to the appropriate background fabric, let cool, and then stitch around each of the pattern pieces using a blanket stitch on your machine.
Make two sets. These make a great Secret Santa gift.
