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.
- For each coaster you need 7 small hexagons. You can use the template (link above) to cut them out.
- 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.
- 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).
- 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?
Great idea, a nice quick little make, thanks for sharing. x
