HOW TO MAKE SIMPLE DIY FABRIC COASTERS
I love creating things and today I’m sharing one of my latest projects – DIY Fabric Coasters. You won’t believe how simple they are to make and better yet, you can make these DIY fabric coasters to fit every dÃ©cor. These make perfect handmade gifts for the holidays and I already have a few people in mind to gift a set to!
Before you get started on this easy DIY tutorial, here are a few tips:
DO I HAVE TO USE A FABRIC CUTTER AND BOARD OR CAN I USE SCISSORS?
You can definitely use a fabric marker and mark out your shape and use regular scissors. It’s totally up to you.

How to care for fabric coasters
Caring for the coasters is easy. I use a Scotch Brite Lint Roller, which is perfect for cleaning off any dust or debris that may stick to the fabric.
WHAT IS BATTING USED FOR IN SEWING?
Batting helps provide extra cushioning between the titles or fabric. It also helps give height to your coaster or sewing project.

HOW TO MAKE FABRIC COASTERS
The complete tutorial and instructions list is available through the printable card below. Here are a few photos though that show the process step by step as you can refer to them as needed.
Step 1 – Cut your fabric
Step 2. Put the material right side down and lay the title on it.
Step 3. Apply adhesive.
Step 4. Wrap
Step 5. Trim
Step 6. Glue cork board if you are using coasters that don’t already have a cork backing
- Fabric quarters
- Ceramic tiles – 4×4 inches
- Cork board
- All purpose glue
- (optional) Bonded Polyester Quilt Batting
- Fabric Cutter and Board
- Trim your fabric to 6×6 inches.
- Lay fabric upside down, set tile upside down on top of it, right in the middle. There will be 1 inch of fabric overhang all around the tile.
- ****If you’d like a softer coaster, and a layer to absorb wetness, add a 4×4 inch piece of Bonded Polyester Quilt Batting between the tile and the fabric.
- Apply glue to one edge of tile. Flap fabric over and rub gently with your fingers to adhere. Repeat on the opposite side of tile.
- Wrap the sides. This is a two step process for a neat finish.
- Make a corner like you’re wrapping a present, then glue the edge down as shown in the photo below. Gently hold down with your finger to adhere.
- Apply glue to entire edge of tile, including on top of the fabric corners you just did. Flap fabric over and rub gently with your fingers to adhere. Repeat these two steps on the opposite side of tile.
- Trim your cork board to just under 4×4 inches.
- Apply a generous amount of glue to one side of cork board, covering all of the edges and middle well. Apply to the bottom of the tile, covering each fabric edge.
- That’s it! Pretty easy, right?!
- Now you’ve got a beautiful set of fabric coasters to use in your home or gift to a friend.
