One note coaster - tutorial

One Note Samba - this song was heard in my room when had sewing the coaster.
Great present for musicians or for a friend.
 You will need
1. Paper pieced picture.
You could buy the pattern from here, put any other paper pieced 3" square picture you like or simply make application or use a picture from a printed fabric.
2. Four strips cut as written in the tutorial.
3. 6" square batting
4. 6" square back fabric.

 First make the paper pieced note.

Trim the note to 3,5 inches.
Cut two stripes 1 3/4" wiide 3 1/2" long and  two stripes 1 3/4" wide 6" long.
Assemble as shown. I forgot to take a picture, so had to draw a schema :)
 At this step you will have this
Add batting and with the back fabric sew right sides together leaving 2 inches opening for turning over.
 Turn and sew blind stitch the opening.

Stitch 1/4 inch from the end of the coaster.
I have chosen red thread.
Outside the picture I stitched with white thread.

 The finished size is 5 1/2 inches square.
