· Citrus Coasters ·


These citrus coasters seemed like just the cheery sort of addition our coffee table needed! :-)

They were a Pinterest-inspired idea which I finally got around to making last summer. They were so fun and such an instant gratification that I'm glad I made the effort to getting around to them! :-)


The process was simple: two 3 1/2" circles of colored felt, one 3 1/4" circle of cream felt, and then one 2 1/2" circle of colored felt cut into 8 segments.


 I cut tiny triangle "seeds" out of 3 segments and then stitched each segment through the cream layer and one colored layer with matching embroidery floss.  

Finally, I finished it off by attaching the second colored circle and stitching around the edge.



Voila!  A great beginner project, but still fun for the more experienced seamstress. :-)


Now I'm inspired to go do some of my other Pinterest ideas..... ;-)
