A Pumpkin Coaster

Happy Friday!  It's my time to share with a 
TOP DOG DIES
project and today I have a fabric pumpkin coaster 
that I whipped together really quick.
Great gift-giving idea for the coffee lover...
tuck inside a basket with a mug, a bag of coffee and 
flavored creamer!

First, I die-cut a piece of felt and two pieces of fabric with the Pumpkin Album Die.
 Just make sure that the second piece of fabric (for the back)
is the mirrored image side before you cut.
So, fabric face down, felt, fabric face up and then die cut.

You can also use a fabric interfacing between the layers of fabric, but felt is
all that I had on hand.  I left the edges of the pumpkin raw, but you can certainly
covered it with piping or turn the edges under before stitching.

I did attach a trimming of yellow jute to the edge of this pumpkin and then
a small yellow bow at the top for extra dimension and interest.
Make several of them in different colors and have them handy for your
Autumn guests to use!
