    I did these as a make and take years ago at the fair using hand crank sewing machines. We all had so much fun and then I heard later how many of them went on to sew other things. A great beginner activity.

    Try doing one in a circle using a cd as a pattern.

    Great idea. I hadn't thought of doing larger squares w/insulbrite for hotpads!

    I have made these using Christmas fabric. Great for a small "happy" for neighbors, etc. Also, they fit nicely on the bottom of a wine glass. You can actually fit the wine glass (stemware) bottom by starting at one side and swirling it until it is covered. Then is becomes a wine glass charm! Will attempt to add picture.

    I have made dozens of these and they really work well too. I have never done the top stitching and they have still held up really well so that would just be a personal preference.

    Thanks for the tutorial. I've made dozens and dozens of these. I love the fact that you don't have to either mess with binding or hand stitch an opening left for turning. I often make them from quilt scraps to coordinate the décor ... bedroom or living rooms.

    I've even made them on a much larger scale and use them as "appliance sliders". I do use the top stitching for the larger ones.

    Here are some ... for bread machine, stand mixer, blender and toaster ...

    Thanks everyone for adding on to my post. I will try out the circle ones using a CD as a pattern and for sure I know some friends who use stemmed glasses. They will be getting some coasters for Christmas for they and their guests. So great to get all the ideas everyone shares.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!
