"Wheel Of Fortune" Coaster

Chinese New Year is approaching, 14 Feb 2010…. same day as Valentine’s day, this year we have double celebrations!!! Woo Hoo!!! I am so excited as this is the most happening festival in a year.

This year, I made most of my Chinese New Year decorations. To start it off, I sewed a few simple coasters by using Chinese Silk. Criss-cross 4 pieces of folded rectangle silks and sew them into circular shape with bias binder. Insert a fortune note in it to become a fortune coaster…. just like the fortune cookies :)

Chinese Silk is colorful, soft and shiny like satin but it frays excessively. I would suggest to give extra seam allowance to accommodate the frays.

Remark: I made these coasters out of the inspiration from the Criss-Cross Coaster that I stumbled upon while browsing through the web.

Let see how I made these 4″ diameter “Wheel of Fortune” Coasters.
