Seersucker Napkins

Created By: Johnny Miller, Ray Hom, Bjorn Wallander

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.

    The Seersucker Napkin featuring a crochet edge in complementing colors is perfect for spring time festivities.

    You could use just about any fabric really. if you're looking to have the fringe on the edge like these have, then you'll want something with a slightly looser weave, like linen or something like that. :)

    Anyone know what other fabric this would work with - I love the idea of having cloth cocktail napkins. I only use cloth napkins for everyday and it saves loads of money not having to buy paper napkins and they hold up better.
