CHAMR-ING COASTERS

"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 
RIGHT SIDE side UP

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.
