Quick DIY Gift – Coaster Ride Coasters

Around the Bobbin’s Coaster Ride Coasters are a fun and novel way to make coasters that are color-coordinated with your décor! They’re cute for your home and they make a nice housewarming gift, too.

You can make your own designer silicone coaster set that protects surfaces against hot, cold and wet beverages. The set of four silicone coasters comes with instructions for completing the coasters with fabrics of your choice and a coaster holder for the set.

Designer Silicone Coasters

To make four Coasters and a Coaster Holder you’ll need:

Heavy duty sewing machine needles (such as Schmetz Microtex 90/14 or denim needles)

supplies for Coaster Ride

The Coaster Ride Coasters kit has the full pattern with detailed instructions. We’ve also provided some pictures of the process…

coaster sandwich and binding
Using the template provided, make a fabric-stabilizer-fabric sandwich. Place it on the bottom side of a silicone coaster. Mark 4 quarter marks on the coaster bottom and fabric sandwich. Line up your quartered off bias binding with these four points and attach with binder clips.
Sew the binding to the fabric sandwich and silicone coaster with a scant ¼” seam. Turn the coaster over and finish attaching the binding. Here, you can see basic steps in coaster construction.

Repeat for each of the other three coasters. Then follow the instructions in the pattern to make the Coaster Holder.
