Christmas present number 2! These were for my mum. I saw on a blog I follow this brilliant idea for wine glass coasters. They are really cute and also very practical. I made 6 Christmas ones and it didn’t take me long at all.
I found the method on whatcorrinedidnext.com. It was really easy to follow, here is how I did it. I chose to use some Christmas fat quarters I had bought from John Lewis. That way I can make each one different so that you can also tell whose wine glass is whose.
You will need:
- A wine glass
- Sewing machine
- Matching or contrasting thread
- Pencil or tailors chalk
- Iron and ironing board
How you make them
- Draw around wine glass on your fabric. I made the circle a little wider so it measured 10cm across to make room for the seam allowance.
- You will need 4 x 10cm pieces of fabric and 1 piece of wadding for each coaster. I made 6.
- Fold 2 of the circles in half and press along the crease.
- place one circle right side down then place a piece of wadding, then another piece of fabric right side up and then the two half circles right sides down and pin in place.
- I made each one different with a different bottom to top and couple with two different half circles. just to spice things up.
- Now stitch around the coaster 5mm from the edge. Make sure you catch all the wadding and fabric edges through all the layers.
- Turn you coaster the right way.
- All done!
Mine are pretty basic but I am going to make some non – Christmas ones and may add some details such as ribbon, buttons or what ever I can find.
Hope you like them!
And thanks Corrine for the inspiration – My mum loved them and I must admit I was really proud of them!
