Quick & Easy: Tea Towel Napkins
Is my attempt at hurrying spring along.
Don't get me wrong,
…but there are strawberries in the supermarket!
(& strawberries are for picnics).
To make your own Tea Towel Napkin
all you need is…
- Pencil/fabric marker
- Sewing Machine
and to follow these easy instructions…
Measure the width of your tea towel napkin (mine was 50cm wide)
Using your width measurement PLUS 2cm for a new seam,
measure and mark along the length of your teatowel .
(Repeat on other length side of tea towel)
We are making a square napkin,
so all of the tea towel side should measure the same.
a. Using your pencil or fabric marker,
draw a line across the width of your teatowel (joining the two sides).
b. Cut across the line.
a. Measure and fold over 1 cm of the top of the teatowel
(the cut edge), & iron
b. Fold the edge over another 1cm, & iron
c. Using your sewing machine, sew your seam closed with a running stitch.
There you have it – a nice new SQUARE napkin.
If you are feeling fancy,
you could also add a lovely crochet edge to your napkin.
Before you know it,
you will have a bunch of brand new napkins
(ready for Spring).
