Ragg-ed Coasters

I found a super cute tutorial HERE for fabric coasters. It inspired me to make some of my own, but I decided to stick with the theme of my living room and go with the ragged/rustic/Americana style since I had lots of scraps left over. So this is what I came up with.
I cut 2 5x5 squares of fabric.
I cut 2 4x4 squares of fusible interfacing and ironed them onto each piece of fabric.
I cut 1 4x4 piece of flannel and put it in between the 2 pieces of fabric.
I pinned it all in place, and sewed and X through the square.
Then I sewed a seam around the whole square. About 3/4".
Then I ragged it by clipping around the sqaure, careful not to cut through the seam.
Wash and dry to get the full rag effect.
