Once I'd figured out a plan for fancy custom glass plates for the gnome party, I couldn't exactly use paper napkins and plastic silverware. I had some wooden silverware left over from the Cornish Fairy party last year--perfect for our rustic woodland vibe. I wanted something a little morepermanent than disposable paper napkins, a little more whimsical, a little more elegant. But not expensive. And so I came up with this project: easy, no-sew napkins made to match the theme of the party.
How to Make Easy No-Sew Napkins to Match Your Event
- fabric (two contrasting types)
- pinking shears
- fusible interfacing
- an iron
4) Sketch out your design on the paper backing of the fusible interfacing. If you're doing lettering, remember that you have to sketch it out backwards! Cut out the shapes with a pair of sharp scissors. It's surprisingly easy to cut out very intricate shapes in the fusible interfacing-backed fabric.
5) Follow the instructions that come with your brand of fusible interfacing to iron the design on your napkin.
And you're done! This project took perhaps 15 minutes and looked so perfectly adorable at the party. I may never go back to paper napkins again!
so crazy cute!!!
