This is the second tutorial I promised. My sister liked the coasters I made for my living room, and wanted a set for hers. I hate cutting and measuring, and found that charm pack squares make a perfect coaster. The only cutting I had to do was the batting, or in this case, felt.
Her living room is full of bright colors, so I chose this Moda charm pack to make her coasters. As you can see above, the front and back are all different.
To make a set of six, you'll need 12 charm pack squares, and 6 pieces of batting or felt. I cut my felt about half an inch larger on all sides, so that I can be sure it is the right size.

These make a great last minute gift, as it only takes a few minutes per coaster. I think this set of 6 took me less than 30 minutes from start to finish. Stack them up, and tie with a pretty ribbon, and you have a gift!
