Beau Chateau Fabric

These projects use the Beau Chateau fabric.  The first is a jewelry bag made with a coaster base. 

Die cut a coaster using the 3″ circle die.  Cut two pieces of Beau Chateau fabric using the 3 1/2″ circle die.  Use Tombow mono adhesive to adhere the fabric to the coaster.  Cut two pieces of fabric 5 /2 x 11 and sew them together, wrong sides together, at the long side.  (I used the rooster print and the Marina Mist print.  Now sew a seam up the short ends, wrong sides together, making a tube.  Fold the tube at the seam – right sides together.  Sew a line at 1″ down and 1 1/2″ down for the ribbon casing.  To attach the tube to the coaster I ran a long stitch around the bottom of the tube.  This gives me a gathering stitch and gives me so “cheat room” if I need it.  Hand stitch the bag to the coaster using small stitches.  Run the ribbon through the channel made at the top by using a crochet needle to wiggle two openings on each side.  Add a fabric flower! 

The coasters were made by cutting two pieces of Beau Chateau fabric 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 and a piece of batting 4 x 4.  Use a 1/4 seam to sew the fabric, wrong sides together, leaving a small opening on one side.  Insert the batting and tuck in the seam.  Sew around the coaster in a square – then a smaller square – then a smaller square – get the idea? 

Don’t look to closely at my lines – they are not very straight!  This is a great way to use up left over fabric.  These have the same fabric on each side – but you could simpler use up all your scraps and have reversible coasters!   Enjoy!  Hugs, Fran

  1. What a cute idea! I can see me doing the coasters but the jewelry bag, looks just too complicated for my sewing skills. Great project!

  2. I love this idea, Fran…and the fabric is so pretty!!

  3. I’ve been trying to decide which of our new fabrics to use to make a small purse….love your choice of fabrics, and the jewelry bag and coaster idea is great. Thanks for sharing!….and as my husband would say…..if the lines on your coaster were straight, you couldn’t tell they were handmade! Frankly, I think they look pretty darn good!
