Recognise the fabric used in this hairband? It was leftover from my previous pillowcase project. I decided to make a hairband for my girl from the scrap and the size was just nice for a little girl's head. I even added the fabric flower for colour. She had a fever yesterday and I thought I could cheer her up with this colourful band. Not going to give any tutorial here since this is quite simple and I did see something similar in blogland before but can't remember where.
Anyway, the main tutorial will be the fabric coaster that I made. I've made something similar for a christmas present using a charm park. But this time, I've used a piece of japanese small cloth. Hmm..not another one of the small cloth project you may say. Probably I should just rename all of them Japanese Small Cloth Projects!
1) Cut out the squares with about 0.5"seam allowance between each square. It was just nice to cut all 16 pieces out along the columns. Sort them by their print. I've 4 sets of 4 designs each.
3) Sew around the edge of the fabric square, leaving 2"gap for turning.
4) Trim the edges and clip the corners. Then, turn it inside out and iron on the right side to make the 3 fabric lay flat.
5) Sew around the edge again, close to the edge. Do take note to sew close the gap that you have left earlier for turning. Your coaster is ready to be use. Enjoy!
