DIY Coasters with Fabric | Hobby Lobby®


Welcome to the Hobby Lobby Creative Studio. I’m Tara, and today I’m going to show
you how to make coasters using fun and trendy fabrics from Hobby Lobby. There are so many prints to choose from, so
pick your favorites, and let’s get started! For each coaster, you’ll need two 5-inch
fabric squares—one for the front and another for the back.Just for the fun of it, try using
a couple different fabric prints. You’ll also need a piece of fusible fleece
for each coaster, cut to 4 and 3/4 inches. Iron the fusible fleece to the wrong side
of one of your 5-inch squares, making sure the rough side—or adhesive side—is touching
the fabric. Now put the two fabric squares right sides
together, and pin to secure. Next it’s time to sew. Begin off center on one edge, and sew a half-inch
seam all the way around. When you reach a corner, keep your needle
down in the fabric, raise the presser foot, and rotate the fabric to continue. This will give you a clean, sharp corner. When you get back to the edge you started
on leave an opening about 2 inches wide, and finish with a backstitch. With the sewing done, you’ll want to clip
the corners to remove unnecessary bulk. This helps get finished corners that are nice
and crisp. Now turn your coaster right side out, and
use a pointed object to push out each corner. Fold the open seam in to match the sewn seam,
and give it all a press. Use a little quick-dry fabric glue on the
opening, keeping it away from the edge so that it doesn’t seep out when you close
the seam. The last thing is gluing on some trim, and
you can’t go wrong with mini pompoms. Work in sections, using clips like these to
secure the trim as you go. This glue dries pretty fast, which means you’ll
be able to remove those clips in no time and start enjoying your new coasters! And that’s it! Thanks for visiting the Hobby Lobby Creative
Studio. Be sure to check out all of Hobby Lobby’s
fabrics available in store and online, and I’ll see you next time.
