I am blessed to be having Thanksgiving at our home this year with matt's family. Today I took a bit of time to put some special cloth napkins together for the table settings. I thought it would be fun to share the quick and easy how-to.
1 recycled cream bed sheet
a large foam stamp
green craft paint
1 wooden stamp
black ink pad
First step is to cut 2-12 inch squares for each napkin.
Next get your paint ready to stamp, I paint the stamp by hand. I chose to stamp the napkins before sewing 2 pieces together to make sure the paint did not bleed through to the second layer.
Let you stamp dry for awhile.
Add the second layer of wording once paint is dry.
Let dry again...
Take napkins to sewing machine and sew right sides together-then turn right side out.
Take napkins to iron and press flat. I use a scrap piece of fabric over the stamp to heat set it and make sure none gets on the iron.
Take back to machine and run a top stitch along the edges for a finished look.
Have fun with this-the possibilities are endless!!!
