Cruisin’ Coaster

So much scrap fabric so little time, so here’s a quick project to use up some squares. Get crazy and cut out some appliques!¬† This was inspired by my friend Keeli, who gave me a set of coasters for Christmas….genious!

Level: Super Easy

Time: 1/2 hour-1 hour


4 ceramic tiles 4″ x 4″

4 pieces of scrap fabric cut 3 3/4″ x 3 3/4″ (just a little smaller than the tile)

Ribbon and applique Optional

Mod Podge Hard set glue

1″ foam brush

Cork (I used some cork squares I had left over from a previous project)

Hot Glue

1. Clean tile with soap and water or rubbing alcohol

2. Cut fabric squares a little smaller than the tile

3. Use the foam brush to apply a thin layer of glue to the tile. Position fabric on the tile, apply another thin layer of glue over the fabric and tile. Let dry.

4. Position ribbon or applique on fabric and tile and apply another thin layer of glue. Let dry.

cut out your applique

5. Cut cork a little smaller than tile about 3 1/2″ x 3 1/2″ and using a hot glue gun, generously apply glue to bottom side of tile. Press cork and let set.

Wrap set with a ribbon or better yet, some scrap fabric and give to a dear friend. I love the set I recieved!
