|In the process of attaching the rings.|
I've also been working on another hand-sewn gift: a set of cloth napkins for my friends' bridal shower. Purple is one of their wedding colors, so I thought that I would follow that theme.
|All materials gathered, ready to get started.|
I first learned how to make these from a tutorial posted on the Purl Bee: Molly's Handmade Napkins. It's basically a piece of cloth cut to your desired size, bordered with a contrasting binding.
|Fabric cut for six napkins.|
First, I measured and cut the main fabric for the napkins, and cut cut strips 2" wide and 2 yards long to make my double-fold binding (It's just like double-fold bias tape, but since the edges of the napkin are all straight, the fabric does not actually have to be cut on the bias).
|Binding pinned on and ready to be sewn.|
I pinned the trim all of the way around the napkin, mitering the corners. Next step: sew the binding on, and hope that I can finish everything in time!
