Napkins… (Crochet)

 

Following on from my cushion decorating with these crochet squares, I decided to decorate some new napkins.
I sorted through my crocheted ‘granny’ squares and then crocheted the flowers and leaves,
I then spent a few happy minutes sorting through my button box for 4 matching buttons that would suit. Do you have a collection of buttons?
Did you, as my younger sister and I, get to sift through your grandmothers collection of buttons?
My Granny kept hers in a round tin I seem to remember, nice to remember such things.

So, my napkins… here’s what I did:-

I chose yellow granny square background and fixed a white flower and two leaves on, sewing them on with white cotton. They had to be sewn on very neatly as the stitches can be seen on the back. These napkins are made from quite a loose linen material which made it easier to hide my stitches.
Found a nice button for the centres and that was it – all done.

Once happy, I gift wrapped them and put them in my Etsy shop

P S I’ll try to limit the crochet items – it’s just such fun and easy to when travelling to work on the bus or watching TV that I keep doing it!
