Crazy Felt Coasters {felt contributor}

Hello once again!  I’m Nancy and I blog over at Small Things with Love.  I am back once again, as the felt contributor, to share with you my latest creations from, that’s right, felt!

This is a super simple project that will add a little funky charm to your living room.  (is there any other kind of charm than funky charm?!?) And plus, they are really fun to make!

Just a little side note before we get to the project:  I draw inspiration from all sorts of places and this project was inspired by all the “free motion” sewing/quilting I have been seeing.  I don’t have a free motion foot for my machine yet, but it is definitely on the list and the good news is that this project was easy to do without a free motion foot!  I am drawn to projects that are “messy”, so the free motion sewing is right up my alley.

So, who’s ready to make some CRAZY felt coasters?

Supplies:
Various Colors of Wool Felt
Scissors
Sewing Machine (regular foot or Free Motion Foot)

Here’s the how to:

  • First, cut out three circles for the front of the coaster in three different felt colors and various sizes.  Cut also a second larger circle for the back.  (Now, since wool felt is more expensive, I used cheap acrylic felt for the backing of my coasters).  
  • Next, head to the sewing machine with the top three pieces arranged, and the bottom backing piece behind.  Start at one edge and sew in a spiral around the coaster until you reach the center, making sure to tuck the top circles under the sewing machine foot as you go.
  • Then, trim any parts of the edge that don’t match up, or where the back piece is showing.
  • Finally, head back to the sewing machine and go nuts sewing around and around and around the edge. This step is really fun.  Make sure that the lines are a little messy and that they aren’t all on top of each other.

And…done!  Pour yourself a cup of tea, garb your book and relax!

I love it!  This project is a nice marriage of craft and art!

I am so thankful that Mandy allows me to share with you each month!
