Intro: How to Make Valentine Raggedy Heart Coasters
You will fall in love with these cute raggedy heart coasters. Scraps of fabric and quilt batting is all you need to complete this adorable project.
You will Need:
scraps of white fabric
scraps of red Valentine's day fabric
scraps of quilt batting
basic sewing needs
For this project and more visit:
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.
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.
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.
Do this to all four "sandwiches."
Notice in the photo the stitching around the heart and around the outer edge of the "sandwich."
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."
Your coasters should be nice and raggedy!
