These sweet winter-style coasters, together with the instruction, have been emailed to us by Margaret E. Minton. Margaret, thank you so much, a very useful and simple to do idea! Here is a photo of some ready
coasters, and below there's a list of supplies and instruction: Supplies list:
Snowflakes embroidery designs
Water soluble topping
Sparkling blue felt
Temporary adhesive spray
Laundry-safe embroidery thread (polyester recommended)
I stitched the designs on white felt then removed the stabilizer.
I sprayed temporary adhesive on the back of the snowflakes, pressed them to a layer of sparky blue felt, then satin-stitched a circle around each design.
I cut away the white layer right next to the satin stitch, but left a round of blue showing, using pinking shears to create an interesting edge design.
For additional interest, I used sparkling white thread for the satin-stitch circle which holds the two pieces together. Now I'm ready for a holiday party!
And here are a couple of more photos:
