Hello Skip to my Lou Readers! I’m Ariean from One Krieger Chick and I’m so excited to be here to share a quick and easy sewing gift idea. I love to sew, but often am short on time. Luckily, these napkins can be made in minutes…
I love giving handmade gifts, especially practical gifts that I hope will be used. We use cloth napkins at our house and I like to have some that are special for the holidays. I’m gong to show you how quick and easy it is to make a set of cloth napkins from a tea towel…You’ll need:
- 1 tea towel per 4 napkins
- fabric paint
- stencil brush
- sewing machine
- iron (optional)
Start by folding the towel in four and cutting along the folds. I find it’s easier if I iron the fabric to create crisp folds.You’ll end up with four same-size pieces of tea towel.Fold each raw edge in a bit and press with the iron.Sew a seam along each folded edge. You should only have to sew two sides of each napkin.Create or purchase a stencil of your choice. I used antlers I cut from vinyl on my Cricut machine.Use a stencil brush to apply a little bit of fabric paint (I chose gold). When dry, lift up the vinyl stencil and you have a darling little antler. I used a different antler shape on each napkin. The vinyl stencils can be used over and over again, so you can make multiple sets of napkins in no time at all!
Perfect for a cup of hot cocoa on a chilly day!If you liked this idea, you may also like a peek into my home at my Very Merry Christmas Home Tour or some of my other holiday ideas.
