A donut with your coffee?


Who doesn't love a donut with their coffee?

How about some donut coasters for your coffee mug? These have been fun and really quite quick to make.

I used my Crossover II machine to cut out all of the circles.

The larger circle die was used to cut the backing (donut) fabric, the brown fabric and the batting. I have a tub full of batting scraps which are what I've used for these. 



The icing was cut with a circle die one size smaller and to save time, I cut out the donut hole at the same time. The icing is then trimmed with scissors to make the wavy icing effect. Each donut is unique.

I layer the backing, batting and background fabrics and sew around the outside edge using a 1/4" seam. After trimming the icing, it's placed in the centre and stitched in place. 

The coasters are finished with pinking shears.

A quick (and fun) project which my nephews will take to their school fair to sell.
