    my tree napkins

    Made these from leftover quilt projects, no trunk and I like them without. They will be posted out soon with the instructions to make more if desired.

    They will look so nice on the Christmas table.
    Fabric is like money, no matter how much you have it's never enough.

    A hint that helped me do the pressing in a quick manner.
    I have one of those covers that has lines etc too line things up. I pressed the half-moon, then used the grid lines to measure off the first 5" fold. Then folded and pressed each one and it went very quick not having to actually mark the first fold line.

    I used the shabby fabrics template but did not stitch on the first fold line, just pressed it well.
    Am sending these trees, with printed template to a sewing relative, so she can make more if she wants for her friends.

    Your tree napkins are so pretty. I have the fabrics to make some for my neighbors for a little gift and hopefully will be able to get them done this week since I am snowed in. . They really look like a lot of fun to make and now I am undecided if I want to put the trunk on them or not. ???

    I didn't like the trunk myself. but it is still cute, either way.

    Very pretty.

    Tree Napkin links

    It appears both Jordan Fabrics and Shabby Fabrics have videos

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dUQaPg1oAnA
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2wcQ0bFQ7Zw

    The template can be found at https://www.shabbyfabrics.com/Free-D...ds-W4C258.aspx which after scrolling down a bit will find " Folded Christmas Tree Napkin " https://www.shabbyfabrics.com/Assets...orDownload.pdf

    These are so pretty. They will look great on your holiday dinner table.
    Never be afraid to try something new. Remember, amateurs built the Ark. Professionals built the Titanic.
