Ticking fabric that is......
Red and white...........
Had some left over from another project and thought I would make a few napkins.
This is what you will need:
fabric of your choice
First I cut 4 14" x 21" for the body of the napkin
then I cut 4 4 1/2 " x 20" for the ruffle. As you can see I have my ruffle stripes gong horizontal.
Now back to the body.
Turn over and sew all four sides to make a
clean edge. I used a quarter inch seam.
Press, press, press. Your body should now measure 13" x 20 1/12"
Now make your ruffle
Sew the same as the body folding over your fabric to finish the long edge. Sew sides the same way.
take your 4 1/2 " x 20 " and sew two rows across the top . This is where you will gather your top
by pulling on these two threads. Gather to measure to 23"
Now you are ready to fray the bottom edge. Start by pulling out threads till it measures 1/2"
Time to sew the ruffle to the body of the napkin. Right sides together.
My napkins measure 13" x 23" finished.
Can't wait to use them in my Christmas Tablescape.......
Thanks for stopping by. You make my day!!
