I love Christmas. I think it is my favourite time of the year. Yes it is busy (OK - hysterical), but for me, it is a time to think about the people and the values that are most important to me.
So, this is a gift of six napkins embroidered with the ideas I want to celebrate at Christmas time:
You can see how the embroidery runs across the whole serviette.
If you want to make a set for yourself:
I cut the napkins at 18 inches and used my trusty water soluble marker to mark out my embroidery.
The embroidery is a simple combination of running stitch and back stitch.
Once the embroidery was completed, I sewed them right sides together with the backing fabric, leaving a small hole to turn them through. Once they were nicely ironed with crisp corners, I top stitched them. If you would like more detailed information and pictures to make some double sided napkins, I found a tutorial here.
And this last picture?
Well I needed an excuse to eat a mince pie...
