  • Step 1

    Start with the base for the coaster, it's made of thick felt (mine is white) and the diameter is 8,5 cm.

  • Step 2

    Then you cut out another circle with the same measurements, in the colour of the wanted fruit (orange for orange, yellow for lemon, etc. ...).

  • Step 3

    Cut out another circle (diameter: ~7cm) out of white felt (!).
    Then handsew it onto the (e.g.) orange one from step 2. Right in the middle.

  • Step 4

    Now cut out triangles (mine were 2,5cm from peak to 'bottom'), seven pieces in the colour of the felt from step 2.
