New Wool Felt Project

I've been experimenting with some new project ideas using our very versatile wool felt. Here's the first one using a piece of our red felt .....it's a coaster that comes up around the base of the glass

To make this, thoroughly soak a piece of wool felt somewhat larger than the base of the glass. Then, with the glass upside down, put the wet felt on the base - pulling and stretching the felt until it forms to the base with no wrinkles or folds. Put a rubber band around the base to hold it firmly in place. Let it thoroughly dry and remove the rubber band. When the felt is dry, it will maintain its new shape. Cut the excess away by trimming around the line where the rubber band was. That's all there is to it - a quick and simple way to have a festive look this time of year and it's a great way to use those extra scraps of felt.
