Not just for making refreshing drinks, fruit can be a great inspiration. Why not turn your hand to a little colourful crafting using your favourite juicy fruit?
Serve ice cool drinks on our lemon and lime slice coasters.
1 Download and print one copy of our ‘coaster’ template here or send a stamped selfaddressed envelope to Coaster Template LLJULY18, LandLove Magazine, HBMUK, The Tower, Phoenix Square, Colchester, Essex, CO4 9HU. The template will print onto one sheet of A4 paper and will make one coaster.
2 Use a pair of sharp scissors to cut out all the shapes.
3 Pin the largest paper circle onto a square of lime green or lemon yellow felt and cut round the paper template.
4 Next, pin the slightly smaller circle onto a square of white felt and cut round it. Unpin both paper templates, pin the two circles together with the smaller white circle directly on top of the larger coloured circle.
5 Hand-stitch the two circles together with small stitches using white thread.
6 Next, cut six segments from the same colour felt as your largest circle. Pin the six segments on top of the coaster and stitch in place, we used a double thread and stitched down the middle of each segment and added a stitch at each corner too.
7 To finish, cut out and stitch three or four white pips to the top of the coaster.
