Once I started making felt coasters, I couldn't stop! (Here are the tutorials for the lemon, lime, and orange.) They're such a quick and satisfying project. Today I have a felt apple coaster and a delicious, refreshing Apple Pie Slushie. It has all the wonderful flavor of fall in an icy version that's perfect for summer. Affiliate links below.
Apple Pie Slushie
- 2 c. apple juice
- juice of one lemon
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp. cloves
Combine all ingredients, then pour them into an ice cream maker. (This is the one we have and I LOVE it.) Churn for approximately 15 minutes, then transfer to glasses. Garnish with whipped cream and cinnamon.
Felt Apple Coaster
Cut out a circle of red felt, approximately 4" in diameter. Cut out a circle of cream felt that is slightly smaller than the red circle. Cut five teardrop-shaped seeds from brown felt.
Use brown thread and a very short running stitch to sew the seeds to the cream circle. When all the seeds are attached, use cream thread to sew the cream circle to the red circle.
