"Charm-ing Coasters"

Select 5 (5 inch) Charms (or use scraps) for each coaster 
For this tutorial I am making 6 coasters
I need a total of 30, 5" squares 

 Select 1 charm for the bottom and 
 Fold the other 4 charms in half,wrong side together (wst)

 Lay the charm for bottom of coaster 

CHARM 1 is the bottom

 Charms 2, 3, 4 and 5 are next
as shown in the photos here.
Raw edges always OUT and fold always IN

CHARM 2 -  (red solid) lay on the left side

CHARM 3 (pink flower) lay along the top side

CHARM 4 (pink on white flower) down the right side

 CHARM 5 (pink/white stripe) along the bottom of the stack

Now tuck the left side of CHARM 5 (stripe) 
under CHARM 1 (red solid)  

Sew 1/4" seam around the entire edge of the square 
(you may pin if needed, to avoid charms slipping)

Finished edges..look like this

Check all around (both sides) to make sure ALL fabrics 
have been sewn a 1/4" especially if you do not pin 
Then, turn the coaster inside out. 
I use a chop stick for poking out the corners.



Make a bunch of these to keep on hand for a quick gift!
I cut lots of my scraps into 5" squares for many projects.
