Quick Coasters in the hoop- Designs Included
Ever need something right now! Well last year one of the charity craft bazaars in my mom's neighbourhood needed lots of little things to fill in. So we made a bunch of these in one night. In sets of 4 of these quick coasters, tied it with a pretty ribbon made their way to the sale. They went fast so we decided to let our granddaughter help make a set for her Sunday school teacher. Since she was barely two and just wanted to push all the buttons it was perfect. Here is a set we kept and, at the bottom a leftover test snowman. I made these designs when I first began but you can download both below if you like.
Here is what you need.
Cream wool felt squares cut 6"x6"
Red wool felt squares cut 6"X6"
Medium weight cut away stabilizer
Temporary adhesive spray
Here is what we did with these.
1. Hoop some cut away stabilizer in our 5"X7" hoop.
2. Using the spray adhesive center the red wool felt on top and secure. Do the same on the backside of the hoop with the cream wool felt square.
3. Carefully slide the hoop onto the machine. Embroider the design.
4. Remove from the hoop. Using the pinking sheers cut around the outside edge.
Make 4 and tie them with a pretty ribbon. Click here to download the snowflake and snowman coaster designs.
That's it! Well I am off to finish those last gifts.
Take care and Happy Holidays.
