Felt Fabric Can Also Be Turned Into Drinking Coasters

Apart from being a non-slip material, it can also hold the glass from shifting due to a layer of felt that can adhere to any surface. This certainly can keep your table from spreading heat on the glass and the possibility of spilling the glass. You can get creative to make a special coaster for your use, or you can make a set of four or five pieces. You can gift a set of coasters as a gift for your friend as a handmade gift, created by your own hands. Of course, it’s fun, isn’t it?
