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.
