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
- Wool Felt (blue, light blue and teal)
- Embroidery Thread
- Sharp Scissors
- 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.
