Free Friday: Maple Leaf Coasters

Happy Friday, everyone!  How did your week go?  Mine has been kind of rough.  First I was sick, then my hubs was sick, so it's been hard getting anything done around here.  That's why there wasn't a Tuesday Tip this week, in case you were wondering.  I hope to have one up next week!

So the free pattern this week is the for the coasters to my new Maple Leaf Kitchen Set:

I really like this pattern.  Actually, I like it so much that I kept it for my own kitchen!  That's all my tea and coffee and stevia in the caddies, lol.  The coasters are a really nice addition to this set, but they look nice all by themselves too! 

Maple Leaf Coasters


Skill Level:

Beginner

Size:

3 ½ x 3 ½ inches


Materials:

  • 1 sheet 7-count plastic canvas
  • Red Heart yarn in colors listed in key
  • #16 plastic canvas needle
  • White Craft Felt
  • Craft Glue

Instructions:

  1. Cut and stitch plastic canvas according to graphs.
  2. Overcast the outside edges with Cafe Latte.
  3. Using coasters as a template, cut out four squares of white craft felt. Trim off 1/8 of an inch on all pieces. Attach to backs of coasters using craft glue.


Click the image above to see it larger.  You may share this pattern however you please as long as you don't alter it or claim it as your own.  You may sell items made from this pattern.  However, you may not sell this pattern.

If you like these coasters, I would be so grateful if you purchased the whole pattern from my Etsy shop.  

Well, I hope you have a good weekend!  Are you going shopping?  Or maybe getting some baking or wrapping done?  Hubs and I are staying in this weekend.  There's a pretty big snow storm coming this way with predictions of 2 feet of snow in the snow belt areas (we'll probably see about 8 inches, but that's still a good amount!).  I plan on staying all bundled up on the couch all weekend!

  1. Cute pattern! The arthritis in my hands keeps me from doing things like this but I love looking! I really need to go shopping this weekend and finish baking. I am behind this year which is new for me and I don't like it!! Happy weekend!

    1. Thank you for the compliment! I'm sorry your arthritis keeps you from doing needlepoint, but it sure doesn't keep you from making super cool decorations :) Have fun shopping and baking!
