I learned how to make paper origami shirts when I was like 10, using instructions like these
http://www.printableheaven.com/section.php/1064/1/origami_shirts

I thought 'hmmm, I bet I could make them with fabric" so some playing around I came up with these:

I think this is the official size I am going to use, made from and 8.5x11 piece of fabric

I just pressed all the folds down with an iron and then I sewed just a thin seem around all the sides.

I guess they could be used as coasters.

Those are really  neat!  Coasters is a great idea, too.  You could also attach them to padded squares for pot holders/trivets and on paper for cards.  I can just see them in tropical prints as invitations or favors for a Hawaiian destination wedding or in that game material for a Vegas wedding.

You could string them together and make a garland!  (I'm on a garland kick lately)

Those would be a great pattern idea for coasters!
(I make coasters for my co-workers sometimes; they love 'em.)

Coasters is a cute idea, garland too!

Cool!  We used to make the paper ones as school projects.  We colored the shirts, and wrote letters on the inside to our dads on Father's Day.  Maybe you could use them for some kind of Father's Day themed project.  Or use them as gift tags.
