A little Christmas Sewing

No garment sewing lately, just last week to decided to make some stocking stuffer & gifts to give to a couple co-workers. I found these of someone else' s blog and for the life of me I can't remember who it was. So, if someone else recognizes this and know the blog please let me know so I can give them the proper credit. These were a great last minute project and I was so glad they shared it. I had some Christmas fabric on so it was easy to get started. So these are napkins when folded form a Christmas tree These were quick and easy and fun to make.

First I made a cardboard 1/2 circle template, I made mine about 1 inch larger than the template in the instructions and I'm glad I did... then I folded the fabric in layers and traced the template with white chalk & cut several layers at once. I did mine with print fabric on one side and a solid on the otherThen I serged the edges...some in red, some green and some gold embroidery thread. There are several way to finish the edges but this was the quickestHere's a link to one set of instructions if you would like to add embroidery Christmas Tree Napkins, I also have another PDF of instructions that are a bit simpler (the one I used) without embroidery but I I don't know how to post the PDF. So, if you'd like that set of instructions send me an email. I'm going to make a few more this week and I'll be pretty much set for Christmas.

Have a very Merry Christmas everyone!

Happy Sewing!!
