Sew Valentine Heart Coasters from Fabric Scraps - Tutorial Tuesday

It's Tutorial Tuesday and today we are going to use up some fabric scraps and strips to make these Valentine-themed coasters.

Looking for more sewing and crafting projects? 


Along with your regular sewing supplies, for this project you will need:
  • One piece of backing fabric measuring 9 ½” x 9 ½”
  • One piece of foundation fabric measuring the same – 9 ½ x 9 ½. (I’m using a piece of muslin but you can use any kind of cotton fabric you might have around.)
  • One piece of cotton batting, 9 ½” by 9 ½”
  • Fabric strips. Mine range from 1” to 1 ½” wide. 
  • Four red fabric scraps measuring at least 4” x 4”. If you’d prefer all your hearts to be made from the same fabric, just use a bigger piece of fabric. (That's what I did.)
  • Something to use as a template for the heart (I’m using a cookie cutter) 
  • Pinking shears, optional
  • Glue stick. (I like this purple disappearing glue.)
  • Basting spray (I like this brand here.)
