f you are looking for Hanukkah Gifts to make that won’t take forever or break the bank then you will love these coasters!

They are a great way to show your appreciation, things to make and sell or to sew for your own Hanukkah home.

I used the Hanukkah Nights fabric I designed for Riley Blake Designs in the images and the September  leaves fabric from the Monthly Placemat Program in the video tutorial.

  • Fabric
    (5) 5″ squares / coaster
  • (1) 4 1/2″ square Fusible Fleece / coaster
    (I used Pellon 987F)
  • Thread
  • Sewing Machine
  • Iron &  Ironing Board
  • Rotary Cutter, Rotary Mat & Quilting Ruler

For a set of 4 coasters:

  • (20) 5″ squares of fabric
  • (4) 4 ½” square of fusible fleece (Pellon 987F)

For a set of 6 coasters:

  • (30) 5″ squares of fabric
  • (6) 4 ½” square of fusible fleece (Pellon 987F)

I used the same process with the Hanukkah Nights fabric as I used with the Fall Leaves fabric in the video below.
