These coasters were created as an answer to another NerdWars challenge. It was based on an Anglo-Saxon Poem/Riddle whose answer is a shield. And coasters shield a table right? As always to get some bonus points for my team I used The Big Bang Theory for inspiration.
I made the background coasters by crocheting using Full O'Sheep - one of Debbie Stollers yarns and then fulled and blocked them back to circular. I made Wonder Woman, Batman, the Flash and Green Lantern. (sorry Raj - just don't know what to make for Aquaman) I have the background done for Superman but haven't done the needle felting. After the fulling I used roving to needle felt the logo. Except for Batman- I thought I had black roving but didn't. I tried to deconstruct the black yarn but it didn;t work out to well. SO I used a thin piece of felt. It did stick into the coaster after the needle felting but didn;t really integrate as well.
