Have I mentioned it's wedding season? This week was Wedding number 3, set in a fabulous winery in Temecula. The bridal party wore "watermelon," the bride looked AMAZING, and the groom teared up when he saw her. It was absolutely perfect.
I knew I wanted to make part of their gift, because she is a crafty gal. Also, I knew it had to be classy, because she is. I figured something that would spruce up a dinner party would be the right choice, because she's the kind of girl who could throw a great party.
I made a set of 6 napkins using muslin, and a quilting cotton. I cut the muslin to 12"x12" and cut a triangle off of each corner before double folding and hemming. Then I single hemmed the decorative fabric and layered it on top.
Sorry about the wrinkley picture. I folded them up before I took the picture, and then was too lazy to re-iron.
For extra class, I made a set of napkin rings. I used copper wire left over from this, orange beads, and faux-pearls.
Make sure the beads have holes big enough for the wire to go through.
I also used Alan's trusty Leatherman (my best friend).
I started with a few feet of wire, strung on some beads (I used 2 of each), and then twisted the wire around a wine bottle neck.
I used the pliers to bend the ends of the wire into little hooks, that I hooked together and closed.
So elegant, and pretty easy.
Ready for a party!
Congrats Smelli and Jon! Can't wait to come over for dinner some time!
