Practice your decorative stitches and make these adorable, affordable and easy felt coasters for valentines day.
Yes I am still stuck on the love theme this month!
Felt is very absorbent and makes great coasters.
They are perfect for gift giving!
.... Or you just may want to keep them for yourself
You will need:
Red Felt (2 layers for each coaster needed)
A Frixion Pen
A rotary cutter with a pinking or wavy blade
A sewing machine with decorative stitches
Threads in Pink, White Lavender and Peach, I used Connecting Threads, Essential Threads, "Salt Water Taffy"
1) Using a heart shape, trace it onto 2 layers of red felt. (You can download for free my shape template from my shop in the free patterns here)
Trace using a Frixion pen, so that when you iron the coaster, the marks go away, it's a wonderful pen!
3) Trim with a wavy rotary cutter blade, close to the edge
It is fun to "audition" these stitches on a small project, that way you know what they look like on something bigger.
I hope you enjoy this quick and easy little project!
