How To Make Felt Leaf Coasters
These resources may help you! Especially if you are a beginner. Use this video to learn the top 12 stitches in hand embroidery. And here is a book I have owned since I was a teen. You will love it! Embroidery Step-by-Step Guide To More Than 200 Stitches. (On Kindle too!)
Select 2 different colored felt fabrics for the maple leaf coaster. Trace the round base on any colored felt fabric you like and trace the maple leaf pattern on a Fall-inspired colored felt fabric. Trace the patterns using a fabric tracing pen or chalk and use scissors to cut them out nicely.
Prepare a needle. Use different colored embroidery thread. (By using thread other than the felt selected for the maple leaf pattern). Place the maple leaf felt cut-out in the middle of the round base cut-out.
Step – 3:
Start stitching from the bottom side of the maple leaf. Tie a knot on the open end of the attached thread and draw the needle from the backside of the base and draw it out to the bottom side of the maple leaf pattern.
Step – 4:
Use a fabric tracing pen (or chalk) to trace the veins of the maple leaf. Next, stitch over the traced vein patterns.
Step – 5:
Fill the vein lines with solid stitches (not a running stitch or any sort of dashed stitches).
Step – 6:
Done stitching the vein patterns of the maple leaf? Now prepare a needle with matching thread (the same color as the maple leaf pattern). Stitch the maple leaf around the side. Make sure to stitch the base with the maple leaf pattern as well when stitching the side. After you’re done stitching, draw the needle to the backside of the coaster pattern. Then tie 2 or 3 tight knots. And cut off extra thread if necessary. The coaster is ready.
Note: If you are worried about the edges of the coaster fraying you can sew or stitch around the edge or use liquid stitch.
