Easy, Peasy Coasters

We have a ghost in our house. Yep, I'm sure of it. You may know him. He takes one sock out of the dryer, hides my car keys, and the worst is, he hides my glasses! After I've searched the house for 30 minutes, he sneaks them back on the top of my head! Now for his latest, he took all of our coasters that were on our end tables. I showed him, I made some new ones today.

I know, I still have leftover bird jellies that I machine quilted. I can't throw anything away, so I'm determined to use up every little bit of it.

When we go out to eat, I don't use the coasters they give us, I put all of them in my purse.
So you take the coaster and trace around it on the right side of the fabric.

I layered the coaster between the two pieces.

Then just sew around it. I did use a zipper foot and it made it easier.

Trim around and snip all the edges. How simple is that?

While I was blogging, I think our little ghost just turned the toilet paper around backwards!

Great idea! You really showed that ghost! I think I have the same one! He also comes and shrinks all the clothes in my closet on occasions! Silly ghost!
