Halloween Fabric Coasters Using Cricut Glitter Iron-on
Gather up some Halloween fabric scraps to create these coasters for your next Halloween get together. The hand stitched coasters are more cute than scary, thanks to a glitter iron-on spider design included with Cricut Access.

Cut two 4.5 inch diameter fabric circles for each coaster and one 4.5 inch circle of batting.
Sandwich the batting between the 2 circles of fabric and pin all the layers together as shown.
Stitch around the edge of the fabric using a blanket stitch. (See the DMC stitch guide at https://www.dmc.com/uk/p-embroidery-stitch-guide.html.)
Using a simple running stitch, create concentric circles about .25 inches apart, beginning from the outer edge of the coaster and working towards the center. (See the DMC stitch guide at https://www.dmc.com/uk/p-embroidery-stitch-guide.html.)
Create a spider cut design in Cricut Design Space, sizing the spider to about 2 inches wide to fit on the coaster. I’m using spider design #M8DB1F87, included with Cricut Access.
Make the project using black glitter iron-on, remembering to mirror your design prior to cutting. Weed the cut design.
Using a Cricut EasyPress or household iron, iron one spider on each coaster following the manufacturer’s instructions.
