Folded Hexagon Coasters

The folded hexagon coasters have been popping up in blogs and on Instagram lately. With Christmas approaching I figured out I had to use my semi-Christmas fabrics to make these.

I started with strips of the different fabrics, and cut 4 1/2" hexagons using the Hex N More ruler.

First I made a test coaster to see if I was satisfied with the color combination and size. Six hexagons for the top were folded and "puzzled" together, with one hexagon for the back. The tiny gingerbread men are especially cute!

Wonder Clips were perfect to hold the fabrics together, and then there were only one seam to be sewn; super simple!

Turning them inside out and pushing out the corners and then giving them a good press, resulted in eight new perfect sized folded hexagon coasters! The fact that there is no batting in these coasters makes them usable for both an ordinary drinking glass and to put wine glasses on.

That gave me eight new Christmas coasters , now the holidays can begin!
