Want to know a quick and fun project to use up some cork scraps? Or maybe you want an easy project to try out cork? I thought up these cork coasters and they are so fast to make. Here's a quick tutorial.
You'll need for a set of 4 coasters:
Cut the cork into 3.5" squares, and the stabilizer/plastic canvas into 3" squares.
I used a small piece of Wonder Tape to hold the plastic canvas in place so it didn't shift. Center the plastic canvas on the wrong side of one piece of cork, leaving a 1/4" all the way around.
Now take another piece of cork in the second colour and sandwich the plastic canvas between the 2 pieces of cork, clip together and sew! I used a longer stitch length than usual for a nice smooth look, and a scant 1/4" seam allowance.
Once they're sewn together, you may want to go around each edge and trim to make sure the edges match up from each side. If you want to add the metal corners, check out the listing page for a simple tutorial.
I've got some fun ideas for these too, like reverse applique with fabric underneath peeking through, or fancy stitching... so many possibilities and with a project this quick, you won't take long finding a way to add your own creative spin!
