It's easy to make felted wool coasters following these simple steps.
First, find that awesome handwoven wool poncho that you made. (I've tried to find a photo of it. It's gone. Just trust me, it was amazing. It was hanging in a tree with fall foliage fluttering around it.)
List the poncho online for $80.
Wait a year or so for it to sell.
Run it through the washer and dryer (hot water wash, then cold water rinse, then hot dryer) and voila! It becomes somewhat felted and fluffy.
Plop it on the floor to see how it looks.
Hmmm. It looks pretty nice, but it is fuzzy. That won't feel good when exiting the shower with wet feet.
So take the $80 poncho rug and repeat that whole hot water wash, cold water rinse, trip through the hot dryer. Ten times.
