This week, I’m appearing as a guest host on HGTV Handmade! I’ll be teaching you how to make three DIY projects I designed specifically for their YouTube channel over the course of the week and I’m so excited for you to see what I’ve been working on.
First up is a tutorial for totally customizable and reversible cloth napkins! I’d been meaning to start using eco-friendly cloth napkins so I don’t throw away as many paper products, but I’ve never really liked the designs that are available on store-bought cloth napkins. And since I am far more motivated to use things that make me happy and reflect my style, I decided to make my own!
For this project, you’re only limited by the patterns and colors of fabric you can find. There are so many designs out there, and you can even buy cotton fabrics like the cotton mint and gold triangles and black cotton with gold anchors that I used to make mine. And while they’re quicker to make with a sewing machine like I did, you can stitch them by hand as long as you can sew in a straight line! I recommend backstitch.
You can also make these for any holidays you celebrate and change them up with the seasons! Which colors and patterns will you choose for your handmade cloth napkins?
I have two HGTV Handmade tutorials to post this week, so make sure to subscribe to their YouTube channel! And if you make these napkins yourself, feel free to post photos of them on social media using #hgtvhandmade and tag me @laurenfairwx on Twitter, Instagram, and Facebook so I can see them too. I’m excited to see what you come up with!
