an important day...
No, not the election...the day I finally got these coasters finished! All 12 Harvesters are represented, and if I feel up to it, I might even let people set a sweaty glass on them! Here's how I made them:
First step: Embroidering these guys onto squares of linen-ish fabric.
Next I cut wool felt and fusible web a bit larger than the size I wanted my finished coasters to be. Then I ironed them all together.
Using a 4.25" template I made, I cut around the square with my scallop scissors. Finally the edges get sealed with clear nail polish (because I still haven't gotten fray-check!).
Now the big question: Will I get napkins stitched in time for Thanksgiving? Doubtful!
