These supercute napkin rings require minimal sewing and are a quick fix for a bland table. They also would make a nice gift set for a person you don't know well or someone who has everything!

Supplies:

  • Four sheets of Steam-A-Seam Lite 2
  • Four complementing red fat quarters—prints, solids, or a combination
  • Two green fat quarters
  • Hand needle
  • Red cotton thread
  • Decorative beads, optional

1. To fuse two fabrics together, place your first fabric face down on your ironing board and peel away one of the paper sides of the Steam-A-Seam. With your iron, press the Steam-A-Seam in place, glue side to the wrong side of the fabric, with no steam.


Fuse the Steam-A-Seam to the wrong side of your first fabric.

2. Peel away the second paper side from the Steam-A-Seam and lay your second fabric on top of the Steam-A-Seam wrong side down Fuse the two fabrics together with steam. Let cool. Do steps 1 and 2 to your red and green fat quarters, fusing together. You will finish with two fused red sheets and one fused green sheet.


Peel away the second side of the Steam-A-Seam.


Place the second fabric wrong sides together with the Steam-A-Seam and first fabric.

3. From your green fused sheet, cut four strips 3-1/2 inches x 6 inches long. Fold the strip in half, and sew along the short end. Turn right side out. This is your napkin ring base.


Cut your ring strip from the fused green sheet.


Sew the ring strip right sides together using a 1/4-inch seam allowance and finish the raw edge.

4. From the remaining fabrics, draw and cut out your poinsettia leaves—three large, four medium, and two small. Each flower should have nine leaves total.


Draw your leaf shapes on the fabric and cut out.

5. Arrange the nine leaves on the napkin ring base and tack in place. Be creative—use both sides of the leaf on the flower.

6. Bead the center of the poinsettia for an added touch of glam. To shape your poinsettias, steam your leaves with your iron and shape as you want while they cool.


Add beads to the center for a little glam.
