Felt Hexagon Snowflake Coaster

Hello!  I have been busy working with felt, once again, and and please with the result: these Felt Hexagon Snowflake Coasters.  They are not the first felt coasters I have ever made, and yet I really love them.  They are simple to make and play on my new favorite shape, hexagons.  I know a lot of crafty ladies are busy creating with hexagons, and I just had to get on board too!

Like I said, these coasters are easy to make–and are reminiscent of the snow we have all seen a little bit too much of this season.  If you want to make your own Felt Hexagon Snowflake Coasters, here the how to.

Felt Hexagon Snowflake Coaster

Supplies:

  1. Wool Felt (blue, light blue and teal)
  2. Embroidery Thread
  3. Tape
  4. Sharp Scissors
  5. Hexagon Template (I used THIS ONE from my friend Mollie over at Wild Olive)

For this project you will need a total of 7 hexagons.  I cut out three from two of the colors, and one from the third color, planning on using the unique color as the center and the backing.  You can make your own pattern, or use the one I provided above.  For a perfect cut, I recommend using tape and the method for cutting felt that I lay out in this post.

Once you have all of your hexagons cut out, grab a larger piece of the felt you are using for the center hexagon (in my case teal).  Lay out all of the hexagons to make sure they fit.  Then, find the center and begin to stitch down each hexagon.  For this step I used a running stitch and found that three stitches on each side was about perfect.

Once you have the center hexagon sewn down, place one of the outside hexagons down, lining up one edge.  Sew it down also using the running stitch, and the same color thread.  Repeat until all of the hexagons are sewn down.

And, finally, trim the background felt so that only a small edge of the color is showing.

Simple, fun…and it does look like a snowflake, right!?!  Well, whether it does or not, I love hexagons and I’ll use it proudly for that reason, if no other.

Thanks, as always, for being here.  I hope where ever you are, you are staying warm.

  1. Hi! Heading over from Tip Junkie to say hello! I run a Math blog along with my own personal blog. Your hexagon project is perfect!! I just did an article about Epcot & using field trips like that to point out all the math in the world – this would be a terrific follow up post. I see your permission to use a single pic and link to you – BUT – can I use them more like a how -to post to reinforce math learning & totally give you credit & link directly to you? I would need to put at least part of the instructions there & then have them come here to get the FULL instructions & even link to several of your wonderful ideas.
    We have great group Pinterest boards to support you & Social Media as well.
    The math blog is: http://www.AplusHomeschool.com
    Personal: http://www.AdventuresInChildRearing.com
    I also run http://www.MollyGreen.com blog & would love to feature you there for Molly Green Magazine sometime – very creative cute ideas!!

    • how cool that one of my projects could be mathematical! As long as you give me credit I’d love for you to use this project. And, I’d love to be featured in Molly Green Magazine some time! thanks for stopping by!

  2. Super cute!

  3. Very cute!

  4. These are lovely, as a kid I used to do patchwork with the cardboard hexagons covered in fabric but haven’t thought about it for years. It’s such a great design and they way you have totally updated the idea with these is lovely.

  5. I really like your blue hexagon coaster!

  6. I’ve been making hexagons like crazy for an English paper pieced quilt. I never even considered making them out of other materials, what a terrific idea! I can’t wait to bust out the felt and make one!

  7. These are SO cute! And simple too! Love that! Thanks so much for sharing at Hit Me with Your Best Shot! Hope to see you back tonight!
