Hexagon Coasters – Tutorial

I always dream that one day I will have the time (and motivation) to make a quilt. I love the hexagon quilts I see popping up on some of the blogs I read and admire the time and patience it takes to cut and sew all those hexagons together. For now though I wanted to stay a bit more in my comfort zone and made these cute hexagon felt coasters.

They are super easy to make, and you can make them your own by picking a colour scheme to match your personal taste and style.

Materials:
Felt
Sewing Threads
Hexagon template

  1. For each coaster you need 7 small hexagons. You can use the template (link above) to cut them out.
  2. Pin the small hexagons onto a piece of felt leaving a small gap (2mm) between each hexagon. Handstitch around each hexagon to secure it to the backing felt.
  3. Add a second layer of felt behind the one you just sewed the hexagons onto and stitch around the outside of your hexagons (I used my sewing machine as it was quicker).
  4. Trim around your hexagons leaving 2mm of felt around the edge.

And that is it! Repeat for however many coasters you need to make.

I also make a set in bright rainbow colours. What colours would you use for your coasters?
