Monday Mosaic…Comfort Food….
I am joining Kathy at Kathy’s Cottage. Stop over at her blog for her Handmade Holidays…
I saw these napkins on a forum where I participate. The original napkins had embroidered designs..I haven’t mastered that yet! Looking for a place to teach me how to use my machine.
Joy was kind enough to share the info she had on them…and I gave it a try!
You start with a round of fabric…folded in half, rick rack sewn in the curved edge..
Then you fold it to look like a tree…
You can use 2 diff fabrics, or, I found this that had different patterns..
4 napkins out of 1 yd.
I will be on the lookout for some interesting fabric. We are fabric store deprived out here, so this was the best I could do!!
My next project is to MORPH potted mums into centerpieces for a family engagement party…
Wrap in gold foil, use thin wire to wire glittered faux leaves together, add fresh baby’s breath, add a mesh bow..
Cost to make..$5.00 each.These were big pots of mums…9 filled the back of the SUV
with the middle seat down..
A just a little Merchandise..I made a trip to the Christmas Tree Shop..
They had a bin of napkin rings for .25…and I had a coupon for 20% off the total order..
These had Target labels..pretty celadon green glass beads with silver wire..
I got some others I will share another time.
I found these little ceramic bears for a future tablescape…50 cents..
A few years ago I found these plates..I loved the face on the Santa..but they had nothing in any other size…
I found these at CTS, and I thought they were close enough…
