Today’s Ramadan craft was made by a guest so I could enjoy the day with my family.
This beautiful felt tea coaster was made by Rawya Hoballah, who loves to craft and sent me a few to choose from.
I picked this tea coaster as I loved the arabesque design on it.
It reminded me of a number of arabesque pattered type of crafts we have made before that I will list at the bottom of this post.
- Felt sheets
- Embroidery thread
Use something round ( bigger than the tea cups you use at home) to draw a circle on the felt, cut 2 circles of the same color.
Cut around the template in the tutorial or any other simple design for example and pin it on the other color that you choose, then cut around it.
Using only 2 strands from the embroidery thread (there are 6).
Sew the shape to one of the circles you already cut.
Now sew both circles together.
When you finish the whole circle you can secure the thread by going back and forth in the last 2 stitches as shown in the photo.
Enjoy your tea!
