Wonky Coasters....Play Day

I invited my Art Sisters over for a

Day of Play...

We are creating......Wonky Coasters

Art Sisters.....Playing with Felt

1mm felt is cut for the next 2 layers 

of the coaster

Three layers of felt to create each coaster.

I made my own templates from manila folders.

Each template shape comes in 

several different sizes.

A glue stick can be used to secure the three 

layers of felt shapes to hold them together until 

you get your stitching completed.

Using 3mm felt, cut out the largest shape for 

the base of the coaster...

Using 1 mm felt, cut out the medium size shape

for the 2nd layer of the coaster.

Then use 1mm felt to cut out the smallest 

top layer of the coaster.

Here are all three layers of the coaster.

At this point, you can use a glue stick

to hold them all together.

Take them over to your sewing machine 

and stitch...

You can drop the feed dogs, pull up the 

bobbin thread and do some free motion, 

scribble stitching on them...

or you can stitch regular with your feed dogs up...

the choice is yours.....both ways work just fine.

It doesn't take long before they start...

piling up !

The girls wrapped them up in sets with ribbon...

for gift giving.

Be Warned...

These are FUN and very addicting !

    1. Hello Lynda......So glad you like them......they are a great deal of fun and make colorful gifts.

      Happy Holidays,

  2. These would even be great to teach little how to sew...the bigger of the littles. They all could have fun picking out the shapes/colors and putting them together! Fabulous gifts!!
