You will need:
  • Either 1/2 yard of flannel fabric or 1/3 yard EACH of 2 flannel fabrics washed and ironed
  • Coordinating thread
  • Old CD or Circle Template
  • Cardstock
  • Pen
  • Scissors
  • Chopstick, retractable pen, Popsicle stick or anything else that will help round out the inside curves
  • Iron

1. Print out this Circle Template or find an old CD, a pen and some stiff paper/cardboard. Spend a few minutes reminiscing about the songs you used to cry to during freshman year. Remember Counting Crow's "Long December"?
After reminiscing, use the CD to trace a circle on the stiff paper. Cut out the circle. Congratulations, you have made your own template!
Use the template to draw circles on the fabric. Draw the circles as closely together as possible. You will need 5 circles per coaster. If you are using 2 different fabrics, cut 3 circles of one fabric and 2 of the other. Cut out the circles.
2. You should have 5 circles. Iron 4 circles exactly in half. Set aside the 5th circle.
3 and 4. Lay out the folded circles exactly as they are shown in the pictures. Start by laying one on the right side, laying the second one on top and the third on the left side.
5. Add the fourth circle to the bottom. Layer the right side of the last circle UNDERNEATH the first circle.

6 and 7. Make sure your folded circles make one circular shape. Find the 5th (unfolded) circle.
8. Lay it (right side down) on top of the folded circles.
9 and 10. Flip the whole thing over and pin. Sew 1/4" seam around the edge. Back stitch.
11. Using a scissors, cut curves around the stitched end. Or cut out triangles, if you prefer. We just need to cut away excess fabric (without cutting into the hem!!).
12. Open up the center of the folded circles. Turn the whole thing inside out.
13. To keep the nice round shape, push out the curved edges with whatever tool you have at your disposal.
14. Round-ish?
15. Top stitch a 1/3 inch hem around the coaster. Back stitch.
16. Make some more!
Place the foot of a wine glass inside the folded circles. It will take a bit of tugging but the foot should fit snugly within the circles.

Wrap them with a pretty ribbon and foist them upon your friends!
