Recently I have been inspired by my granny's rug rag (something similar to this) http://www.craftpassion.com/2009/09/rag-rug-grannys-style.html and I came out with the tutorial of making it but in a smaller scale - a coaster http://www.craftpassion.com/2009/09/sewing-tutorial-triangle-fold-coaster.html, since I have not collected enough fabric to make a rug rag.

You can turn it to some Christmas tree ornaments, or some table decoration for this holy festive season. Some said that she wants to make it as Christmas gifts too.... The possibility is endless!


For me, I have turned it to something cute - "spiky" hedgehog purse http://www.craftpassion.com/2009/09/the-spiky-hedgehog-purse.html...

Hope you like it Smiley







Repeat this step layer by layer from outer to inner until you complete filling up the coaster as shown in the first photo.
and add a center piece to decorate the coaster more.

I really enjoyed making this!  I had really small pieces of fabric so my triangles aren't so good, but I like it anyway.  I think I'll add some thread or something to turn it into an ornament. 
Thanks for the tutorial!!!
I gotta work on my photography skills.

Hi CaveWomen Crafts, it only took me a few hours Smiley. You should be able to do it a day or 2 in your first trial!!!
Happy trying!

I think the ironing took about an hour-ish and then sewing it probably took another hour-ish.  Not too bad though.  I definitely want to do another better one.  I was hesitant when sewing down the triangles; I didn't want the thread to be seen, but I think I'd be better off not worrying about that since some of my triangles ended up not being held on too sturdy-like. 
Thanks for comments on mine!  Hopefully I'll get better with practice.  Smiley
