  • 2-3 8x12" sheets of white felt
  • embroidery thread to match your felt
  • scissors
  • citrus coaster template (available for free download from The Purl Bee)

These are so cute. For those who lack capacitance in cutting all the details try a different shape - harts, tea cup etc.

Karina - I'm not sure how long these would take... but once you have all the pieces cut out, I imagine things would go pretty quickly!

I 've made holiday pins with felt for years, but never thought to make coasters. These are just, as Maven put it, Darling! Thanks for sharing Capree!

Agreed!  Almost too darling; I'd be afraid of staining them!
