Candy Hearts Coaster - Free Pattern

download now

February is here!  That means we are that much closer to spring!  I am not a fan of winter or snow, so I start getting spring fever around Dec 1st.  :)  And February also means Valentine's Day!  I was in the store the other day and enjoyed seeing all the pretty red and pink valentine's candies and decorations, and the candy hearts inspired these coasters.  I also have begun a new obsession hobby of working with felt, so I had to incorporate that into the design as well.  :)

I found this set of heart cookie cutters at Walmart, and used the smallest cutter and traced around it onto the felt to make the heart.  It's around 1 1/4".

Hi Doni! LOVE these coasters, and am SURE I will be trying to whip up at LEAST a couple! Thanks for sharing your pattern and inspiration! (Oh, and love the heart cookie cutters too! Just recently made my first batch of linzear cookies with star cutters in several sizes, much like these hearts... And they were so pretty, AND DELICIOUS!)~tina
