I made these coasters for jemimah in the OWS78



I made these double-sided but you could make them single sided if you wanted to.


You'll need:
felt
an outline of a leaf the size you want you coasters to be
sewing machine
threads
scissors
Quilt basting spray / pins (optional)


I used green for my top layer & brown for the bottom layer. Firstly i put both felt colors together. (right side facing out, if it has an obvious right side). If you wanted to you could use quilt basting spray to stick them together so they don't move.
Pin your leaf outline to your felt & cut around the edge. Repeat for as many coasters as you are making.

Once they are cut out it is time to head to the sewing machine. I used green thread for my top thread & brown for my bobbin fill. Using straight stitch on your machine sew veins onto you leaf. Repeat with all coasters.

You could also hand stitch the veins but it would take a bit longer.

This is so cute! My question is, did you use the basting spray to keep the edges from separating (I didn't see you say anything about sewing the edges together.), or are the edges free?
