Coasters Made From Old Shirt

I loved this print and really could not feel right in not making a nice little craft from it so I decided on coasters! The pattern was cut from paper left from a sheet of stickers which was high gloss and somewhat waxy so it will last a good long while.


I made the shape of a leaf I hand drew and traced around it for a set of 6 coasters (12 total leaf shapes). They are double lined between front and back outsides with lavender scented dryer sheets (100/$1) and hand stitched. I might decide to improve on these and machine stitch them for durability later. We shall see!

Sounds simple. I've thought about making them but didn't know how until I came across your craft. Thanks!
