Make iron-on vinyl coasters

Filed Under: Crafts, sewing, gifts

iron-on vinyl coastersI often wish that the pretty fabric I find could somehow be protected from sticky little fingers or grown-up messes. If only that pretty cloth came as an oilcloth or was water or dirt resistant. I could finish so many more projects if I could just preserve the cloth using oilcloth or vinyl.

Jessica at How About Orange has a tutorial on how to make iron-on vinyl coasters. She found the iron-on vinyl at her local craft store, and decided to try it out by making the gorgeous coasters, using some heavy weight fabric and glossy vinyl. She sewed the cloth and vinyl together, and then used pinking shears to give the finished coasters a nice edge.

The iron-on vinyl is flexible, water repellent and UV resistant. Imagine all the nice gifts you can make; after all, Christmas will be here before you know it. I can't wait to finish making giant bibs and smocks for my 3 year old, laminate my scrapbook paper, and finish the chair seat covers.

    how did you do your chair seat covers? i am really wanting to recover my kitchen table chairs with some material that can be wiped clean. i've been looking at oilcloth but there are some other fabrics that i would much rather use. can i just apply the iron on vinyl to any fabric and cover the chairs? will it be flexible enough to form to the cusions? thanks!!
