Step 5: Trim Batting in Acorn Top

In order for the acorn top batting to fit better you will need to trim off the batting stem at the top and trim away batting 1/4” from the bottom. Note: This is the only place you trim away the stem.

Step 6: Sewing Acorn Top

Using the same method from Step 3, place acorn tops right sides together. Then lay the batting against one of the wrong sides of the acorn tops.

The batting will be 1/4” shorter. This is where you will begin the stitching. Stitch the sides and top, but leave the bottom open for turning.

Now for the fun part! Look through your sewing machine’s decorative stitches. Choose one that can swing from side to side, such as a zigzag.

You want to be able to catch both fabrics when attaching. Stitch the acorn top to acorn bottom. Topstitch if desired.

Pro Tip: Using a fabric glue pen can keep this from shifting while you sew. Also, a Walking Foot is another tool to keep the two pieces aligned.

  5. Just saw this craft for the fall…. and the template is gone.
    Looking forward to your new posts.

  6. I just ran across this pattern today for the acorn coasters. I can’t seem to be able to download the pattern. I am really interested in making some of these, however the site that the link takes me to has me sign up, but IF I did get it downloaded, I sure can not figure up how to view the pattern or even print it out to use. Please email me the pattern so I can make these adorable coasters.

    Thank you.

  7. These acorn coasters would make cute gifts. I bet I could use extra batting and use them as potholders too. You could also make a smaller one and decorate a tea towel. Then you’d have a whole set of acorn kitchen decor. Adorable pattern. I’m going to pin this one on Pinterest.
