Homemade Buffalo Plaid Flannel Coaster

Create your very own coaster with a rustic touch by making a homemade buffalo plaid flannel coaster. This DIY project is perfect for adding a cozy and stylish element to your home decor. To start, gather some flannel fabric in buffalo plaid pattern, as well as some felt for the backing. Cut the fabric into square pieces of your desired size, making sure to have enough to create a front and back layer for each coaster. These coasters make great gifts or additions to your own home, bringing a touch of warmth and charm to any space.

Supplies Needed:

  • Sewing machine
  • Batting
  • Scissors (or fabric cutter)
  • Flannel Fabric (used black buffalo plaid)
  • Ruler
  • Cutting Mat


Start by cutting two 5-inch x 5-inch squares from the flannel fabric and one 5-inch x 5-inch square from the batting. You can do that with either scissors or a roller cutter.

Next, place the flannel fabric together with print sides facing towards each other, and the batting on top and pin them together.

Sew a 1/4 inch straight stitch around the edge leaving one side open to be able to flip right side out.

Then turn it inside right through that open side. Then turn the raw edges in on the unsewn edge and sew 1/4 inch all around the coaster for a finished look. We used a zigzag stitch for the finished stitch around.

Another great thing about coasters like these is they are not only great to make for your own home, they make great gifts too. You can stack and tie a bow around them and give as a gift. Or add them to a gift basket with maybe a new mug and some coffee or fresh tea. Just get a little creative.
