Boho Valentine Napkins and Rings
I like to create a tablescape for each holiday. For Valentine’s Day, I wanted to make some light-hearted (get the pun?) napkins and napkin rings without spending lots of money. What could be more light-hearted and fun than tie-dye and yarn?
I had some left-over white quilting squares that I abandoned years ago after someone borrowed my rotary cutter and mat, and never returned them. I purchased the napkin rings and Love ribbon from the Dollar Tree, then spent around $3 on dye at my local grocery store. The whole project cost around $5. My goal for 2019 is to spend $50 (or less) each month on blog projects for Love My Little Cottage.
material for napkins, cut to the desired size
napkin rings (see 2nd picture)
Love ribbon (see 1st or 2nd picture)
dye (I used Petal Pink)
sewing machine and accessories (pins, thread, needle, etc.)
scissors for fabric
scissors for cardboard
1 cup of salt for the dye bath (not pictured)
Instructions For Napkins:
Place two fabric squares right side to right side, and pin. Sew the two pieces of cloth together about 5/8” from the edge- leave a few inches unsewn, so the napkin can be turned inside-out after sewing. Place the sewing machine stitch dial on 7.
After you turn the napkin inside out, fold the unsewn part inward. Top-stitch around the whole napkin about 1/2” from the edge. Sew especially well over the area that was left unsewn the first time around. This two-part sewing method gives the napkin thickness and a nicer edge. In my opinion, it’s a simple way to make napkins.
Fold a piece of paper in half and cut out a 2” heart. Trace the heart patttern onto the cardboard as many times as needed. I made 8 napkins, so I needed 8 hearts to make my napkin rings.
