One thing I’m lovely lately, that has been a great distraction from all my health issues is stepping outside the box. I love being able to create pieces everyone can enjoy.
Here is a simple DIY on napkins. Yes, these “Patch & Stitch Napkins” are super easy and affordable to make you’re gonna have to make some for your home.
12x14 - inch of linen ( we used 4 pocket rags)
4-inch embroidery hoop
Embroidery floss- brown
Needles: embroidery and sewing
Sewing thread- beige
3 pieces of any size fabric ( we used canvas drop cloth in various sizes)
Prepare the Pattern
Cut 3 pieces of canvas in a variety of sizes. With the beige sewing thread sew the canvas onto of the pocket rags. This will hold the pieces of fabric onto the front of the napkins. Center fabric in embroidery hoop. Pull fabric taut; tighten screw.
Embroider the Napkin Front
Use the Crossed Straight Stitch. This is a series of horizontal running stitches covered by vertical running stitches. Use two strands of brown embroidery floss for all stitching. See stitch diagram below.
Reposition hoop as needed to stitch all of design.
Snip the beige thread off the patches of each napkins. Add your favorite ribbon or napkin holder and TADA, you’re done.
