Each year for my quilt group's Christmas party, I come up with a theme for gifts to exchange. I had been telling my homekeeping online group about my choice for this year's theme...cloth napkins. They decided that they also wanted to do this exchange so I got to make a practice run with them. *grins*
I had them fill in a questionnaire about their dishes and color choices when they set the table. I then gave each person their secret partner's answers. I had Tammy
and these are the napkins I made for her.
The fabric is a vintage reproduction with a matching plaid for the back. The napkins are sewn in half circles and then folded and ironed to create a tree.
Tammy created a Christmas table setting to show the napkins after she received them. I am thrilled you like them Tammy as I had fun making them especially for you!
Many thanks for the lovely napkins, Heidi. I'm looking forward to using them! It was a fun swap and we appreciate your hosting. :o)
What a fun, these napkins! Really sweet, those trees ...
Oh, they came out so nice. You hit it right for the table and dishes.
Can't wait to see what you get.
What a lovely idea. I like the tree shape.
What a fun thing to do!!!
Even though I am not a Christmas tree person, I love your napkins!
What a darling designs for napkins. I love it! Hugs from CA.
So cute - I love them. Is there a pattern or directions for these Heidi? Not sure I could figure it all out on my own. Here's an odd coicidence....Tammy's dishes look like the ones I just bought 2 weeks ago from Mikasa! I never had white dishes before and thought it would be fun as I could do any sort of table theme I wanted without having to match to my dishes. I love to decorate my table for holidays etc.
What a wonderful idea---maybe a tutorial to come??
You're so organized - planning ahead for Christmas already!
Great napkins! I love that they're not the traditional square napkin. Perhaps now I'll be inspired to make some from the fabric that we bought a year ago!
What a pretty idea - lucky Tammy!
That's a very clever idea and beautifully sewn.
