My wife thought it was a bad idea but...to protect the new sofa we needed some coasters that didn't look like a bargain from a charity shop.
I found a cool designer felt coaster by zigzign
a Danish company and thought I could make one.
No offence but I think mine came out a little better.
Although this took some time the end result was worth it (just watch your fingers on the felting needles - be warned, they are very sharp!)
