Picnic Essentials - 3 in 1 Napkins

Project by Michelle Roberts AKA Creative Blonde

Follow my tutorial to make your very own 3 in 1 napkins. These napkins have many uses, from placemats, to napkins to cutlery wraps.

To create this napkins I'm using the brand new collection British Waterways designed by Sarah Payne.

Be sure to check out my Picnic blanket that double as a table cloths for picnics benches.

To make a matching set of two napkins, cut two green squares measuring 12 ½” and two kingfisher squares measuring the same (I centralised the kingfisher in the centre of the square)

Next cut two pieces from the green fabric measuring 3” x 4” this will be used to tie around the cutlery when wrapped up.

To create the ties, fold one short over ¼” and press. Fold the whole piece in half, press, open out and fold the two outer edges to the centre crease and press. Fold in half and top stitch around the edge.

Pin to the inside top left corner of the green square, make sure the raw edge is pinned towards the raw edge of the square.

Lay one of each fabric square RST and sew around the edge using a ½” seam allowance. Leave a 2” gap for turning right side out.

Fix a Kam snap to one edge of the tie, and the other half 2 ¼” into the pain fabric - parallel to the first one. (see photo above for placement).

Follow the photo below to see how to wrap your cutlery up.
