Here’s an idea for those fabrics you’ve collected but never seem to make the cut for other projects, the “dogs” of your fabric stash.  Cut them into strips and coil them up into a fabric coaster!  The patterns you don’t care for will be reduced to spots of color and print on a round coaster.  Angie Padilla from Angie’s Bits n’ Pieces shares a free downloadable project sheet at Pattern Spot explaining how to do it.  (You’ll need a free account to download the file.)  Go to the project sheet download page.
