Felted Acrylic Coasters

Timorous Beasties, felted acrylic coasters

Inspired by this fabulous material, I made some more felted coasters.

They started out like this, made in Stylecraft Special DK and a 4.5mm hookcrochet coasters, Amanzi

I blocked them as usual, under a damp cloth, on my poor old ironing board.

Then put them on a piece of card on a low wooden table, placing another piece of card over them and with the iron on the hottest setting applied as much pressure as I could, circling the iron for about a minute.

The result was these silky looking coasters

Now I’m wondering about some placemats to go with them …..

    • I don’t know if anyone else has done it – I’m sure they must have done somewhere – it just occured to me to give it a try and I’m really pleased with the result. i’m always experimenting – but so many experiments are not useful at all!!!!! 😀 Ha!

  10. I wasn’t only thinking place mats, before I got to that bit, I was mentally crocheting the smaller units together for larger things. I have not made this kind of felt, but have an old bamboo calendar I’m holding on to for when I get around to it. Such fun!

  13. They look great – and you’re simultaneously reducing the chance of them shedding fibres!

    • Isn’t it fabulous – it is by a firm called Timorous Beasties – wildly expensive but worth it for the effect – I think you’d call it a statement piece! (ps. the chair is not mine!) the coasters are a present for the owner of the chair.
