    I always put a 5" square of warm and natural batting in mine.

    Very nice tutorial, well done.

    I had not seen the one using triangles. They are pretty cute! It would be a great way to use up extra charm squares. Thanks for the lesson.

    Very nice. I use this same tecnique to make coasters to fit on the bottom of my wine glasses. No more rings on my tables, I slip them on the glasses before my guests arrive and each one is different so everyone knows what glass is there's.

    I have made both of these, but everyone seems to like the triangles better. I also catch the center with embroidery threads or very small flat buttons. Add that little extra touch. Great gifts and they pair really well with coordinating fabrics and the project of the month (fabric bowl). Everyone loves them!

    I've made probably 50 or so of these (straight) this fall. Beyond easy. I'll have to do a few of the triangle ones, too. But I don't sew around the edge, just press good.
