How to make the coasters
Step one: Trace one of the coaster templates from PDF download (link above). Place your fabric centrally right side (RS) up on top of it and trace over the words and the circular outline.
Step two: Stitch over the words with backstitch, using four strands of grey thread.
Step three: Press the Bondaweb, paper side up, centrally over the wrong side (WS) of the stitched circle.
Step four: Peel off the paper backing then press it RS up on top of the felt.
Step five: Cut out along the drawn circle outline through both layers of fabric and felt.
Step six: Topstitch around the edge of your coaster 3mm (1⁄16in) from the edge to secure the felt to the fabric. You can easily do this by hand if you’re not confident sewing in a circle.
That’s it! Your coasters are ready to party.
