Felt coasters


Here we have two sets of coasters made from felt. I cut out squares, and then trimmed the edges with pinking shears. I sewed around each one of the butterflies and flowers with my sewing machine, which was the most tedious part, since the corners are so small - I was picking the presser foot up after almost every stitch. I then layered green, then pink, then green, then pink in a stack. So each of the two sets you see has four coasters. They are finalized with velvet ribon on the top, which the one in the left corner of the photo, I slid through a rhinestone buckle, the one on the right is a pearl buckle. The lower ribbon is slid through little pearl heart buckles. These will be given as gifts to family.
By the way stop over at my animation blog to watch & comment on 2 of my new animations!
Below, a picture I found from last year. Hugs.

The coasters are lovely. I could see doing a series with different kinds of bugs--ladybugs, dragonflies.
