Hi all, I wanted to share the Spider Web Coaster I made today!

Here's how to:

Spider web Coasters

Tools and Materials:

2 squares of black acrylic felt 5
1 square of orange acrylic felt 4
1 package of jumbo rick rack (5/8wide)
cutting tools and ruler
sewing thread and machine (optional)
a piece of tape
pearl cotton or embroidery floss

1. Pin the orange square of felt onto the black square, doing your best to center the orange.

2. With the sewing machine and black thread, sew a border around the orange square. If you dont have a machine you can do this by hand.

3. Using the piece of tape as a guide, sew a few diagonal lines, one at a time within the 1/4 border.

4. Using the pearl cotton, embroider the rest of the lines for the web. Dont worry about being perfect, real spider webs arent perfect or symmetrical!

5. Sandwich the rickrack between the plain black square and the piece that youve made the spider web on. Pin well and sew through all layers along the edge of the piece. For added detail, embroider a little spider onto your web. Enjoy!
