I love birthdays and tomorrow is a great friends special day! So I decided to lay down a little felt project. Hopefully the internet is still down at the house so she won't read this before I give it to her. Bit of a risk!
She's a fan of warm drinks and has just moved into a new house. Coasters!! You can never have enough coasters. Well may you can, but not really cool looking ones. They turned out really good.
I like the hand spun intertwined with the store bought yarn. Photos aren't great to show the colours, but the oranges, greens and browns are yummy.
I used a Norwegian wool as the base that really felts up to a good thickness for a heat barrier. Started out with one large sheet and then cut it into 4 x 4 1/2 inch slabs. Felted them a bit more to soften up the cut edges and stretched them back into shape.
Hope she likes them.
