Felt Christmas Coaster DIY


Oh you guys! I’ve been having SO MUCH FUN with machine embroidery! If you’ve been following on Instagram then you’ll know I’ve been working to learn what it’s all about. Brother Canada kindly sent me their Innovis 990D to play with. They also sent me PE Design 10 software so I can make my own embroidery designs. The process has been so much to learn but also incredible. The feeling of having an idea, then sketching it out on my iPad, then embroidering it out in real life and holding it in my hands is such a thrill. I’ll never tire of it!


Now that I have a few projects under my belt I feel confident enough to offer this little design file as a free download so you can use it in your embroidery sewing machine. You’ll be able to make these fun, festive felt Christmas ball coasters in no time. The download file has complete instructions and file formats for various machines for you to enjoy.


This design was pretty simple and I was able to put it together with the built in motif stitches in PE Design 10 in not too much time. I’ve designed it so that you can stitch this in multiple colours or all in one colour. I preferred mine all in white stitching on bright felt but you can do whatever you wish!

If you have an embroidery machine then I hope you’ll download this and have a go at making these fun coasters! If you don’t, I hope I’ve piqued your interest into the possibility of what can be achieved with one.  The Innovis 990D comes equipped with quite a few Disney images plus borders, motif stitches, flowers and lettering too. I’ll keep sharing what I make with this machine, it’s inspired a whole new sort of crafting for me and I’m super excited to share it with you guys.
