Just thought I’d round things out this week with Vintage Sheet Project #3 (see Project #1 here and Project #2 here)- fabric cocktail napkins. I love these, by the way. Like, sort-of-wish-I’d-kept-them-for-myself-instead-of-giving-them-as-a-gift love them. Maybe I’ll make myself a batch. 😉
And you definitely should make yourself a batch too!
I followed this basic cocktail napkin tutorial…
..cut my (washed!) sheets (6″ x 12″ rectangles instead of squares)…
…folded in half (with the right sides facing each other) and sewed up the two sides…
…pinking sheared to two sides…
…folded over a cuff on the open edge…
…turned right side in…
…top stitched around the perimeter…
…added a square of zigzag stitching about an inch in…
…and tied up with a bow of bakers twine!
Don’t they make a pretty gift? Don’t they make you want to go cut up your stash of vintage sheets to make a pile of these lovelies?
