Fabric napkin rings are a great idea for using up scraps of fabric that you love.
Here's how to make your own fabric napkin rings.
1. Cut two rectangles of fabric measuring nine inches by three inches for each ring.
2. Stitch two rectangles together. I used my serger to stitch two wrong sides together. If you don't have a serger you could turn down the edges of each rectangle a quarter inch and steam with an iron. Then put wrong sides together and top stitch around all sides of the rectangle.
3. Sew a button hole one inch in from the edge of the napkin ring.
4. Sew a button six inches from the button hole. (I learned how to sew buttons with my sewing machine for this project. Holy cow! So easy! I followed my sewing machine manual, but here is a great tutorial. Seriously...why did I ever sew a button by hand?)
That's it! You are done. Below are some of the napkin rings I made that are for sale in my shop.
Happy sewing and thanks for reading!
