MY FLOWER GARDEN Felt Coaster
MY FLOWER GARDEN has a very vintage "wool penny" type look to it and when designing this I couldn't help but think of how long it took the women of long ago to make the wool, press it, cut it and sew it all to make one doily item or table runner. OH MY. I kind of went CRAZY with the "vine" stitching but after all, that is what they do...MEANDER here and there! I think I captured the look!
I made this coaster using wool grade felt. I also used DMC floss to stitch and occasionally some interfacing. This is all hand done. I had a pair of scissors, needle and thread. I would not recommend washing it. And though I claim this to be a "coaster" I would hang it on a wall somewhere. It's too pretty to muck up with a sweating glass of tea. I'm just saying....
MY FLOWER GARDEN Felt Coaster measures 6 inches diamond to diamond.
