Hi everybody :) I'm Joanna from Shape Moth blog. Madame Samm asked me to prepare a tute for you using my Jar PP pattern (you can find free downloadable pattern HERE). The pattern is in pdf, but for those who prefer to work with jpegs, here's the jpeg (you would need to increase the pattern to fit to this project; how much? It's up to you):
I decided to make a cup coaster (actually, I will make a set of cup coasters, just didn't manage to do it now).
Print out the pattern and sew the jar using your favourite fabrics. I used some Christmas themed fabrics, cause a set of coasters can be a nice Christmas gift. Trim the fabric around the jar (while sewing the jar I aded some more fabric around). You can resize the pattern as you wish. My coaster measures 6"x6":
Add batting. I used iron-on fussible interfacing, but you can add whatever you have of course:
And choose the fabric for the back of your coaster:
If you have some fabric adhesive you can spray the backing fabric, but you can also use pins and attach the back fabric for a moment:
Sew around the jar to enhance the design and to bind all the layers together:
Attach a piece of ribbon to the back of the coaster if you want it later to hang somewhere:
Now it's time for binding.
As shown in the tute from the link, finish the binding with invisible stitch:
And the Christmas coaster is ready:
Hope you like the tute :) Thank you for letting me share with you today!
