Hello Everyone! I am so excited to share How to Make Upcycled Fall Coasters with you. I’ve been MIA since April, and it is so good to be back! How I’ve missed making things and reading about the projects my blogging friends have made. After 25 years, we put the Little Cottage on the market and decided to build a house. Can you believe it? For the past four months we’ve been preparing our house to sell, packing, and moving. Now we are neatly tucked away in a two-bedroom apartment while our new home is being built. It’s time to start making some pretty things for the new house.
Capture the spirit of autumn in your home with these Upcycled Fall Coasters. The soft, warm textures bring back memories of autumn sweaters, cool fall breezes, and apple cider. Fabric coasters are also practical because they soak up the excess condensation on the outside of the glass. The leather backing has a rich, earthy scent and gives the coaster body and stability.
- leather scraps- I ordered a two-pound box of gorgeous leather scraps from Amazon.
- thrifted items- black watch plaid fat quarter, camel hair blazer, denim/sherpa vest, and a wool sweater.
- basic sewing supplies
- leather and fabric scissors
- pen and big coffee mug for tracing
- heavy duty sewing machine needle
Thrifting for materials
It was exciting to shop for thrift store items to upcycle into coasters. I had the black watch plaid fat quarter in my sewing stash and found a denim vest lined with sherpa, a men’s camel hair blazer, and a child’s wool sweater (or maybe one that some poor soul accidently put into the dryer).
