If you have old embroidered pieces, combine them with old fabric and burlap to make vintage feel coasters. These are cross stitch pieces I dis a while ago and have been repurposed here.
Here is a look at the material you will need - the embroidered patch or edging, burlap, old fabric, fuse bonding paper and threads in different colour.
Cut fuse bonding paper to the size of the embroidered piece.
Iron it on to the burlap or old fabric cut to size.
Finish with a running stitch in a contrasting colour.
