Four Patch Drink Coasters with Faux Binding

I’m picturing two types of reactions to this project.  The first is from people who think binding is a breeze and are wondering why I’m going to so much trouble.  Why not just bind them like normal?  The second is from people like me who have serious issues with getting binding sewn on to their…
