Wool Penny Coasters

Wool Penny Coasters

The other day I was going through some old books and came upon a wool penny rug that I’ve wanted to make for years…I shared the pic last week. I know I don’t have enough time right now to tackle a rug, but I wanted to use the wool pennies for SOMETHING! I started a table runner, but it’s going to take a while, so I came up with a much quicker project, just to satisfy my desire to work with these addictive circles!

So…I made coasters. I know, I know. I just made felted circle coasters. How many coasters does one person need? Well, honestly, probably 1 BUT they do make great gifts and they are very fast projects. I made a set of six in about 6 hours. And they did turn out lovely. I’m going to keep this set, but I plan to make a set for Tim’s family Christmas gift exchange. I pulled the name of one of his sisters, (he has 6 of them!) who has many Mary Engelbreit things in her house, so I’m thinking of making them in red, white, black and yellow…
