Let’s Sew Coasters for Hanukkah

If 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.

Let me show you the easiest way to make coasters that are cute as can be!

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.
