Introduction

Seersucker is always fitting for a warm-weather party -- and these napkins are no exception. The classic fabric is inexpensive and available at almost any cloth store, so you can mix and match a few colors. Even better, seersucker's slightly puckered texture means there's no ironing required.

Materials

  • Scissors
  • For a cocktail napkin 10-inch square of fabric; for a dinner napkin, a 20- to 24-inch square.

Steps

  1. Step 1

    Create a fringed border by using a pin to pull out several threads. As it's washed, the border will continue to unravel, creating a more relaxed look (think cutoff shorts). If you want to minimize this, sew a straight line at the root of the fringe.
