I'm a sucker for cool, modular design and love anything made out of felt. These two tutorials are quick and easy ways to brighten up your tabletop in any color you like. They'd also make great handmade hostess gifts.
Jessica from How About Orange created these tutorials for a modular trivet and coasters, complete with downloadable templates.
The idea came from these modular carpets, here and here, but she didn't want to have to cut almost a million pieces of felt to get the effect. So, starting out smaller to get the same lovely design in a more petite package was the way to go.
