I love these little coasters! They are made with the leftover oilcloth from our kitchen table. They are toddler-proof (for the most part) since they can't be broken or cracked. They can't be used as a frisbee to clock someone in the forehead like our old ones. Alas, these are user-friendly, wipe-friendly and make-friendly.
- oilcloth scraps
- round container to use as template with diameter of approx. 4 1/2 inches
- pinking shears
- sewing pins
- sewing machine
- Using your round template, trace out two circles of oilcloth and cut to size.
- Place under-sides of two circles together and pin in place.
- Sew them together around the edge of the circle as shown in figure "3".
- Remove pins.
- Cut around the rim of the circle with pinking shears to make a pretty edge (making sure you don't snip the seam) and you are finished!
You can place them directly on your coffee table, stacked up, nice and pretty. Or, you can put them inside a tiny basket or tray. For a simple sewing project for baby, visit here.
"The use of sewing is exceeding old,
As in the sacred text it is enrold:
Our parents first in Paradise began."
~ John Taylor (1578-1653)
