Polka dot coasters

I made these six mix and match coasters for a housewarming gift. On one side they're all Denyse Schmidt floral and on the other side, three are brown polka dots and three are red polka dots. That way you can have all floral or all polka dots or two of each.

They're 4" square with thin cotton batting. Simply cut two 4 1/2" squares of fabric and lay them right sides together. Cut a 4" square of batting and centre it on the fabric suares. Stitch around the batting, just catching the edge, leaving an opening for turning. Turn, hand stitch the opening then press.
