These cleverly personalized coasters offer a fun, open-handed expression of your child’s generosity — and they’re a great holiday gift that kids can make.
What you’ll need
- Card stock
- Pencil or chalk
- 2 coordinating or contrasting cotton fabrics (washed, dried, and ironed)
- 1 package double-sided stiff fusible interfacing (we used Dritz Heavyweight InnerFuse, $7 at fabric stores)
How to make it
Trace your child’s hand on a piece of card stock and cut it out to make a template. Use a pencil or chalk to trace the desired number of coasters on one of the fabrics. Trim the fabric into a rectangle that contains all of your tracings, then trim the second fabric and the interfacing to match its size.
Following the interfacing package’s instructions, fuse it between the two fabrics with an iron (an adult’s job). Cut along the traced lines with scissors.
