You will need to cut five pieces of fabric from scraps or fat quarters. It is best to iron your fabric before cutting so you get a better measurement.
Cut two pieces of fabric at 4"x4" and three pieces of fabric 4"x5 3/4".
Fold the two 4"x4" pieces in half and iron.
Fold two of the 4"x5 3/4" pieces in half lengthwise and iron.
The third 4"x5 3/4" piece will be used for the back of the tissue holder.
Lay the seconded 4"x4" piece under the first layer, matching cut edges, and folder edge to the center.
Sew all around the outside edge about 1/4". I used a surger stitch, but a straight stitch and a zig-zag will work too.
I have made and plan to make a few more sets of coasters using this same pattern. The fabric cutting guide is five pieces of 5"x5" square, fold four in half, layer, sew and turn the same as above.
Increase the square size to make pot holders, just add a layer or two of quilt batting to absorb the heat. Hope you are inspired to create using our great fabric too.
Happy Stampin Up Fabric!
