I completed my first set of napkin rings last night and they look really cute (well I think so!)
They are for my mum to use throughout the year. The next job will be to make to make the Christmas version to match the table runner that I finally opened yesterday. There's quite a lot of sewing to be done. I hope I'm up to it!
To make these gorgeous little napkin rings I used:
4 sheets of pink felt (A4 paper sized)
1 metre of ribbon in a complimentary colour
A needle and thread
A glue gun
A toilet roll tube to shape the napkin rings
The tutorial for the flower was found at Emily's Little World blog. I used felt and rather than glue the fabric I chose to hand sew it. I did this by placing a cross stitch in the centre of each petal fold. I secured each one with a number of stitches.
I then folded back the remaining ribbon to make a looped 'leaf' and stiched it into place.
After sticking the flowers on with the hot glue and pressing down vigourously - I was left with 4 lovely napkin rings.
I hope you like them!
