Napkin ring tutorial
The ones we were using were beginning to look a bit tired and I had it in mind to make some new ones.
They happened this week.
You will need:-
2 pieces of fabric 6 inches x 3 inches
2 pieces of braid each 6 inches long
1 piece of batting - I find cotton batting works best for this project - 5 7/8 inches by 2 7/8 inches
1 piece of matching fabric 2 1/2 inches by 2 inches
You can use a permanent marker as this will be hidden.
I knew I was going to stitch the rest of the napkin ring with a variegated thread so I used that for the braid as well.
Fold it in half lengthwise and stitch at each end. 1/4 inch seam allowance - lock seams at beginning and end.
Place the tab at one end of braided piece raw edge to raw edge.
Clip corners and turn to the right side.
Hand stitch from the edge of the napkin ring, around the tab and then to the other end of ring.
Secure thread and your napkin is ready to use.
