Make Your Own Holiday Cloth Napkins

February 12th, 2013 posted by Ben Franklin Crafts & Frames

The holidays are fast approaching and it’s that time of year to plan for the festivities. If you are the host of this year’s feast, why not make your own holiday cloth napkins? They are easy to make Christmas crafts and quite beautiful sitting next to your good China.

You will need:

1 yard 36″ fabric (cotton or a cotton blend is best) (Note: makes 4 napkins) Fabric Scissors Coordinating Thread Sewing Machine Iron (if you do not have a serger)

If you make this project

we’d love to see it! Just send your photos and comments to the editor and it may get published on our Facebook fan page !

What you do

The best size is an 18″ square. Out of a yard of 36″ fabric you can make 4 napkins. 1. First, cut down the fold line for 2 halves. Then fold these 2 pieces of fabric in half again and cut. Now you have 4 pieces of fabric, 18 inches each. 2. On each napkin, fold and press each edge 1/8″ and then fold and press again 1/8″. The selvage is now covered. 3. Sew close to the inside folded edge with matching thread. Note: If you have a serger, you can just go around each edge without folding and pressing. That’s it! Go and have some fun with great fabrics.
