It's Homemade Saturday's at Scrapbook Blessings Club, where the Design Team shares with you projects they are working on that does not include paper. With this being said, I'm sharing with you today an embroidered napkin. I don't know if I'm a rare breed but I love to "set" the table complete with cloth napkins. At first, most people are afraid to use them and ask for either a paper towel or a napkin. I just laugh and say they're machine washable!!!! Next, whenever I'm out and about, one thing I always look for are napkins on sale - here's one of those sales . . . how bout 4 cloth napkins for 99 cents!!!!!! Also, I want to point out that I love using napkins as an embroidery vessel as they are sew versatile - they can be used as a bread basket liner, to cover the bread, candle mats, wrap a homemade gift and believe it or not, even a napkin!!!!
I found out why they were sew cheap, but I'm not that concerned. Due to the florescent lighting in the store, the top napkin has some color issues but all is well as that will be the wrong side.
I get my colors ready and in stitch order that once the machine starts, I don't have to search for threads
the magic begins as I press the start key (the red button turn yellow) and sit back and watch - I'm only needed to change thread colors
Once the stitching is complete, you need to tear the excess stabilizer away along with trimming threads. This is the back of the napkin.
