I made this delightful set of coasters inspired by many bear rug coasters seen on Etsy/Pinterest for a friend in a local/private craft swap a couple months ago. They are each made with a double layer of machine felted wool sweaters with hand-embroidered face details. Unfortunately my memory card got fried before I took my finished photos of them and after I had given them away, so here are some donated photos from my friend and some photos from my phone camera (sorry for sad quality! Pretend you can tell they have sleepy little eyes). They now live in an art studio where they are getting much great usage!!

Crafting keeps the madness at bay. Or is it the cause?

Adorable!  I think a larger version that is a hot water holder may have to be made too!

Adorable!
I like that you used felt with patterns, it gives them character.

I held onto the patterned chunks of sweaters for a stupid amount of time to make sure I got the perfect project to use them for. I have a couple other items that I used the rest of the sweaters for. They all belong to my awesomely talented friend StudioANF. She was definitely worth using my beloved patterned sweater felt on Wink
