SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • Plaid flannel, 2 yds
  • Plain colored flannel, 2 yds
  • Thread to match
  • Deertan Trim Leather 9”x3”, 2
  • Leather Rotary Cutter
  • Rotary Cutter, Cutting Mat, Ruler
  • Straight Pins
  • Sewing Machine
  • Sewing Machine Needles

DIRECTIONS:

    NAPKINS
  1. Carefully press flannels to remove all wrinkles and creases.
  2. Use a rotary blade, cutting mat, and clear ruler to cut 8 - 18” squares of both flannels.
  3. Place one plaid flannel square and one plain flannel square RST (right sides together). Pin so all sides are even.
  4. Using a 1/4” seam, stitch all sides, pivoting at corners and leaving an opening for turning the napkin right side out. Back stitch at beginning and end to secure stitching.
  5. Press stitching while wrong side out. Carefully trim corners, avoid cutting the stitching. Turn right side out, push corners out for crisp corners.
  6. Press again. Press opening closed. Pin in place.
  7. Lengthen stitch on machine. Topstitch 1/8” from edge on all sides to finish the napkin and close the opening.
  8. Optional: If Topstitching is not desire, hand stitch the opening closed with a slip stitch.
  9. Repeat for the other 7 napkins.

NAPKIN RINGS
  • Use leather rotary cutter to cut each leather piece into 4 lengths resulting in 8 leather pieces 9” long.
  • Carefully cut each leather piece in half up to within 2” of end. Wrap leather around the napkin with cut ends inserted at end of cut to hold leather on napkin.

  • JOANN Hacks:

    • Check plaid alignment while cutting. Cut along the plaid lines to insure the best looking plaid napkin (not crooked)
    • Time saver hint: Complete all steps above with the 8 napkins at once. Ex. Pin all 8. Sew all 8. Press, etc. This saves time going from sewing machine to ironing board and back.
    • Pressing seams on wrong side aids thread in the seam line on becoming part of the fabric.

An idea would be to take a favorite--simple cookie cutter--for example a Christmas bell and dip it into cornstarch and then press it on the center of the napkin to leave it's outline. Pin close to it and then stitch, perhaps using a different color of thread in the bobbin to make your napkins easier to reuse after washing. Happy stitching!</span> <div class="bvseo-pubdate">Date published: 2019-09-06</div> <meta itemprop="datePublished" content="2019-09-06" /> </div> <div class="bvseo-review" itemprop="review" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Review" data-reviewid="219377046"> <meta itemprop="itemReviewed" content="How To Make Flannel Napkins" /> <span itemprop="reviewRating" itemscope itemtype="http://schema.org/Rating"> Rated <span itemprop="ratingValue">5</span> out of <span itemprop="bestRating">5</span> </span> by <span itemprop="author">Fran</span> from <span itemprop="name">Nice to make for fall and winter napkins</span> <span itemprop="description">A great project for anyone to follow the pattern, make me think of lovely holiday napkins for Thanksgiving and for Christmas.
