I’ve noticed lately that my coasters are grungy and stained, and really need to be tossed out.
So I decided to replace them with a homemade set, made from felt.
Luckily for me, I have a ginormous stash of felted wool sweaters and blazers to choose from. I’ve made a lot of hats, scarves, mittens and purses out of felted wool, which leaves me with a lot of wool scraps (perfect for this project!).
I started out with these wool blazer scraps that I cut into 4″ circles…
I stacked 3 of the 4″ circles and stitched them together using a blanket stitch. (You can check out how to do a blanket stitch via future girl craft blog.)
I added a couple of smaller circles to the coasters to jazz them up a bit.
After arranging all of the felt pieces the way I wanted them, and stitching them all up, this is what I ended up with…
Aren’t they cute?
These were so easy. I made them while relaxing on the couch and watching some shows with the fam’.
I really like working with felt, and I’m always searching on Pinterest for cute felted projects.
I also get a lot of ideas from crafting books (most of which come from my library for FREE!). My favorite would have to be Warm Fuzzies by Betz White.
If you have any awesome felt projects that you’d like to share with me, I’d love to check them out!
