Step 1:

First you will need to make yourself a heart pattern from paper. The heart should measure about 4".

Cut four squares of fabric measuring 5 1/2 ".

Pin and cut out the four hearts.

Step 2:

To make a set of four coasters you will need eight 6 1/2" squares of fabric for the coasters, and four 4 1/2" squares of quilt batting for the inside of the coasters.

Step 3:

Place one quilt batting in-between two 6 1/2" squares, just like a "sandwich", with the pretty sides of the fabric facing out.

Pin one heart on the top, in the center of the "sandwich" as shown in the photo.

Stitch around the heart using a 1/2" seam allowance.

Step 4:

Stitch around the outer edge of your "sandwich" using a 1" seam allowance.

Do this to all four "sandwiches."

Notice in the photo the stitching around the heart and around the outer edge of the "sandwich."

Step 5:

In order for your coaster to "rag" well, cut slits around your heart and the outer edge of the coaster making sure you do not cut into your stitching.  The smaller the slits and closer together, the better the coasters will "rag."

Step 6:

Wash your coasters in the washer under the setting of "Cold/Cold." Dry your coaster in the dryer under the "Low" setting.

Your coasters should be nice and raggedy!

Happy Sewing!

    Another gorgeous idea. Pinning it to my Valentine's boards. Cute and easy gift for kids to make. Just trace and cut out these paper heart coasters for a fun Valentine's Day gift. I'm now following you.

    Very very cute! Any chance you have larger photos you could share?
