Easy Felt Valentine's Day Beverage Coasters Pattern

If you are looking for a fast and easy craft project that you can make for Valentine's Day, consider making some felt beverage coasters. These coasters only take a handful of crafting supplies and are completely hand sewn.

Here are the supplies that you will need:

Red and Pink Craft Felt
Red, White and Pink Cotton Embroidery Floss
Blunt Tip Sewing Needle
Hand Drawn Heart Pattern (our pattern measures 3 1/2" tall by 3 1/2" wide).

Step 1: Cut your pink felt into 4 1/2" squares. You will need two squares for each coaster that you make. From red felt, cut one heart shape for each coaster.

Step 2: Using two strands of pink or white embroidery floss, hand stitch the word hugs, love or xoxo onto your red felt heart. Once that has been completed, use two strands of pink embroidery floss and blanket stitch the red heart to the center of one pink square. You will do a blanket stitch around the entire circumference of the heart which will attach it to the pink square.

Step 3: Place your heart square (right side up) against a solid pink square and use two strands of red embroidery floss and blanket stitch both of your squares together. Once finish, fasten off the ends of your floss by hiding them inside the coaster.
