Wine Stem coaster tutorial- quick and easy!

Hi again.  I know that we are supposed to be talking pillows and I will get back to that but I had to share these cute, super easy wine stem coasters.
 You can make these in no time...I made 8 in less than an hour!  For each coaster, you will need five 4" cotton squares and one 4" square of cotton batting.  I decided to use four different fabrics.
Choose 1 square to be the bottom of the coaster and set this aside.  Fold and press each of the remaining 4 squares wrong sides together to measure 4"x 2".  Next comes the layering.  Start with the batting square and place the square of backing on top of it with the wrong side of the fabric facing the batting.
Each of the pressed 2"x 4" pieces are placed overlapping on top of the right side of the backing piece as shown below.  Be sure to place the folded edges toward the center!

Step 4
Secure these folded layers with 2 or 3 pins and sew a 1/4" seam all the way around the outside edge.

Clip the corners and turn right side out through the overlapping layers.  Press and you are done!

Wouldn't these make great hostess gifts?  I think I will make them in different fabrics for holiday parties so guests will be able to identify their glasses without wine charms. :)
