Finish Up:

embroidery is used to add the numbers and hands.

First, trace the clock template onto tissue paper.  Click here for the clock template.

Once the clock face is traced on tissue paper align and pin the template to your coaster like so:

Thread your needle with black yarn and begin embroidering the clock face onto the coaster.  Each line on the template represents one embroidery stitch.  Start by bringing your needle up from the back and finish by bringing your needle down from the front.

Carefully pull away the tissue paper.  I firmly hold my embroidery stitches while pulling away the paper.  Use tweezers to get the tissue paper from between the numerals.  Enjoy!
