Patterned Fabric Coasters



Since moving to Asheville, I've acquired some nicer furniture than the IKEA setup I had in Brooklyn. One of those pieces is a dining room table I bought when I lived in Pittsburgh.

My mom refurbished it for me and it's quite beautiful. This means I can no longer use craft knives at the table, cut fabric, and leave drinks. No, that was crazy Brooklyn Ashley. Now that I'm sophisticated (teehee), I use coasters.

I took the materials for these straight outta my fabric stash. They're reversible, and I lined them with some quilt batting scraps I had. I think I see place mats in my future, too.

Have you ever sewn any functional home d├ęcor? There's a lot more fabric where this came from!

  1. Younger me would think that current me is so lame for being jealous of the need to use these cute coasters, but holy crap you have a grownup table! I want to be an adult with a real table too. Our table has a crack in the middle that catches all of our crumbs. Classy.
