Cupcake Coaster Tutorial

I have a new pattern for you this morning and a very simple tutorial
To stitch these cute coasters you will need:
Cream cotton fabric
Patterned cotton fabric
Matching sewing thread
Stranded embroidery threads
crewel needle
embroidery hoop

What you do
Cut two squares from the patterned fabric
Cut the embroidered fabric into a square slightly smaller than the coaster and stitch to the R/S of one square with running stitch using 3 strands of pink embroidery thread
Place the coaster back and front R/S together and stitch taking a 1/4" seam
Leave a small gap in one side
Turn through to the right side and press
Hand stitch the gap
Make 3 more and give as a gift or use yourself and admire your stitching every time you use them!

I also have a little kit available in my Etsy shop featuring the cupcake design on a felt coaster
