I hope my mom doesn't read my blog for a few days...
I just finished a little project for her but need to mail it off to southern Ontario, where she lives. She gave me some fabric in January to make her a table topper to match her chair covers (my mom LOVES to match things together) and I had a wee bit left over to make up some cute little coasters. It will be perfect in her kitchen.
I meant to take more pictures as I went along but alas I did not! Anyways, I found a new technique for adding binding, which I thought would work really well for small items such as coasters. I just laid the top and batting (squared up) on a piece of backing and cut 1" around the outer edge of the top. Once I did some magical folding and ironing (my poor fingers were scalded) I sewed around the binding. I wouldn't do this for bigger projects but for coasters it worked well.
Here is the link I found for picture instructions: Cheater Binding
