felt + baker's twine coaster tutorial | the twinery

I do love my cup of coffee. Well actually, my several cups of coffee,  if I'm truthful! And everyone needs a darling little rug mug, right?

Hi there, I'm over on The Twinery blog today with this quick project and super easy tutorial...so easy that you might want to make one to match each of your favorite mugs!


Let's get started:

Felt + Baker's Twine Coaster Tutorial | Monika Wright for The Twinery
  1. Choose the size and shape you want to create and cut two layers of felt. 
  2. Cut another shape, somewhat smaller than the first two you cut.
  3. Place the smaller shape between the two larger layers, which offers a bit more protection for your fine furniture.
  4. Thread your favorite shade of baker's twine, I used Marigold Stripe.
  5. Because the baker's twine is a thicker than sewing thread, I used this hole punch to aid me in getting my needle through the felt.
  6. Begin the blanket stitch to join your two layers together. Remember the third {smaller} layer of felt is sandwiched between the two larger shapes.
And now, you have a sweet coaster for your favorite cup of tea or mug of java.
