Beautiful napkins add an amazing touch to what might be an otherwise simple table setting. These napkins are really easy to make and look absolutely perfect for any table setting!
For all of our DIY Brides – Please keep in mind it does take a while to do all the ironing required. Therefore, if you’re planning to make these for your wedding, start a few months in advance and work in smaller sets of 10 or so!
My napkins ended up costing about .98 cents each because I bought 2 yards of seersucker that wasn’t on sale, but I’m sure you can get that price way down if you buy a bolt of bulk fabric online. Even .98 isn’t bad considering napkins usually rent for around .50 each and these fabric napkins would make great thank you gifts for bridesmaids, mothers and aunts.
- Fabric (2.25 yards of fabric made 10 napkins)
- Roll Stitch Witchery or another type of no-sew adhesive (I used about 1/2 of the roll for 10 napkins)
1. Cut out 16.5 inch squares from your fabric (it doesn’t need to be folded).
2. Fold each edge of the fabric 1/4 inch over and iron.
3. Fold the edge over again and iron to make a smooth hem.
4. Cut a piece of Stitch Witchery the length of the edge of the napkin and place it in between the folds. Iron each side of the napkin for 10 seconds and repeat on each edge.
If you notice the corners of the folds sticking out a little, cut a small piece of Stitch Witchery and place it under the fold in the corner and repeat the ironing.
I folded my napkins in thirds and ironed them before placing them on the place settings.
