How does one create superhero coasters? Good question!
A couple of weeks ago Nancy over at Do Small Things with Love, shared some Crazy Coasters that she made from felt. Quickly a good natured competition developed with my friend, Amy over at One Artsy Mama.
Well, Amy whipped up some bright, fun, happy coasters in less than 10 minutes (or so it seemed). I was much slower in getting moving. I had planned on going to the store and buying the perfect color combinations of felt, but….. a couple of days later I decided to simply use had I had in the house. .
Bleh. This was it. I was decided to go ahead and use what I already had no matter how uninspiring the color choices. I used a small bowl as the pattern for the largest circle and then just cut the other circles freehand. Next time I’ll find other smaller circles to trace so that the smaller circles are more symmetrical.
Following Nancy’s directions, the coasters were quick and easy to whip up (my favorite kind of craft project!).
I was a little unsettled by my coasters. Nancy and Amy had set the bar pretty high with their beautiful versions. I was dissatisfied with mine, until I realized that I had created the perfect coasters for…… a superhero.
If superheroes used coasters, these would be them.
See what I mean? Now I’m very pleased with my humble superhero coasters. I’ll be expecting Superman or Captain America to drop by for coffee any day now.
I hope you had a wonderful New Year’s. We spent it with all my family at home, including my parents and our dear friends, the R. family, visiting. They’ve traveled to 2 different states and 3 of our homes to spend New Year’s Eve with us. It’s such a fun tradition and we look forward to…
I’ve been saving glass jars since we moved into our current house a year ago. We must eat way too many jarred foods because I’m being overrun by glass jars. When my friend, J., came over for a day of crafting and chatting (the modern-day quilting bee equivalent), I knew we had to do a project using these…
I have friends that collect trash, cast-offs and junk and then give it to me to repurpose. I know I’m not the only one with such good friends. (Thanks to other bloggers I know this.) Every time it happens I’m equally giddy that they thought of me and embarrassed that when they thought,”Who should I…
