Making the Coasters/Ornaments
Step One: Draw a circle around the stitch-out.
Step Two: Make a sandwich using another piece of felt, low-loft batting and felt with the embroidery. Pin them together.
Step Four: On your sewing machine, topstitch through all layers along the drawn line.
Note: If you are making a hanging ornament and want to attach a loop, cut a piece of trim or ribbon about 12" long, fold it in half and tuck the ends between the layers.
Step Five: Fold the upper and lower felt layers back and cut away the batting as close to the stitches as possible.
Note: If you added a loop, take care not to cut it.
Step Six: Return to your sewing machine, choose any decorative stitch you like and topstitch along the circle.
Step Seven: Using the pinking shears, cut away the upper and lower layers.
Note: If you added a loop, take care not to cut through it.
This is what the coaster looks like.
Your coasters are done. Enjoy!
