So ya know, I ran out of fabric to finish those mitered napkins and got sidetracked...
I made some very simple coasters instead. My DH is constantly putting his soda glass right next to my little laptop and of course a puddle ensues. And I started to worry that someday, the laptop would be sitting in water and ZAP! no more laptop.
So I made coasters and keep a couple right next to the laptop so he has NO EXCUSE for letting the water pool anymore.
They're simply cut into 4x4" squares, and sandwiched with a layer of thin cotton batt in between. I used two different types of fabric, didn't have enough of the green one but lots of other scraps....
Then I serge all the way around, trim threads and dab the corners with some Fray Check.
Took less than 20 minutes to make 4 of these. And I made more napkins, dinner size, for a matching set! Woohoo!
And yes, I'm trying to avoid going to the fabric store... You know how that goes... :D
