I love hosting Christmas and am a great believer that it is the little handmade, personal details that make all the difference.
Last year I made these individualised napkins from scratch using old white bed sheets.
Cut up the sheet/material into large squares or rectangles (it’s a personal choice). Then, using a sewing machine for a neat finish, hem the edges to create your basic napkin.
Then choose a selection of coloured thread and interesting buttons to use to decorate each one. Using a soft pencil, sketch your design onto one cornor of the napkin and hand sew over to create your design. See the baby Jesus one below:
You can also use the buttons to create a more colourful and 3D effect. I did a different design for each one because I love variety.
You could do the same one each one for a more sophisticated look.
