New, free weaving pattern to share: “Quarantine Coasters”

Hello, friends. Like many of my fiber arts and home sewing friends, my mother and I made a collection of face masks for our family members and this project generated a lot of fabric scraps. We used high quality quilter’s cotton (not knitted t-shirt material) for our face masks and, being a resourceful northern New Englander,  I couldn’t quite bring myself to throw away decently sized fabric scraps. So I decided to weave mug rugs on my rigid heddle loom:

These coasters were satisfying to make that I’ve decided to share my pattern draft. This project is suitable for weavers of all abilities. I wove my coasters on a rigid heddle loom. If you work on a floor loom, you could easily adapt this to a two or four shaft loom.

If you make some of these yourself, I’d love to see photos! I suspect I’ll be putting on another warp for more soon. Happy weaving and stay well,

  1. Thank you for the pattern. Would love to know your threading for the blue batik ones. It’s such a fun project to do. Betty


    1. So sorry I don’t want you to share (batik draft) anything that would be part of your business…struggling to find the right words. I appreciate so much the hard work you put into preparing the Quarantine Coasters pattern. Thanks again. Betty


      1. Oh, gosh, don’t worry about that. I surely did not “invent” canvas weave. The threading is in a lot of 4 shaft books, like Davison and Anne Fields. It is basically a 1-2-2-1, 3,4,4,3 repeat on a 4 shaft loom (jack style).


  2. I downloaded your instructions for the Quarantine coasters made with fabric scraps and a Heddle loom. The skills describe using my hem stitch skills, but there are no instructions for making a hem stitch edge? How do I sew a hem stitch?
