We recently had an Open House to celebrate buying our first house and our 20th Anniversary.
I wanted to have a little party favor for everyone to take home and some way for our guests to keep track of their beer, wine ect...
I had seen this gorgeous 5mm felt and thought that would be perfect - if I could cut it well enough- and if my machine could sew through it to letter it.

What do you think?

Everyone took them home - so I think they liked them. Smiley

It looks great. It must have been a hard job. How did they use them to keep track of their drinks?

The project was not too hard, really. One of the hardest parts was figuring out everyone's favorite color for the thread.
I was nervous to cut the felt- and not every square was perfect, but I kept the slightly skewed ones for myself. Wink

As to keeping track of drinks- everyone took their coaster on the way in and set it under their drink wherever they were sitting.
We had a couple of guests with the same name (2 Jasons and 2 Franks) so that was what gave me the idea to do everyones name is different colors. Smiley

What a clever and thoughtful idea!! They turned out great. I'm sure your guests will get lots of use out of them and you avoided any wine rings on your furniture Smiley. Nice!

Congrats on the new house!
