For Sun Coaster
Needed materials: anti-skid fabric/material, large eye sewing needle or sharp point tapestry needle, 6 pins
Cut a piece of anti-skid material by tracing the Sun applique on the back of the material leaving an ⅛” to ¼” around to get the size and shape you need. When sewing the points the edge of the anti-skid material will be folded under to keep smooth edges.
Sew the material to the back side of the crochet Sun, starting by sewing around Rnd 7 first, then sew around each point of the sun using a whip stitch.
If needed use pins to hold sun and backing in place while sewing.
I would love to see your crochet sun projects!
