Boho Valentine Napkins and RingsI 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?
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.
Happy Valentine’s Day!
