Project

Seersucker Napkin Ring

Introduction

These napkin rings were inspired by the cuff of a seersucker shirt. To take it a step further, add a button covered with the fabric in a contrasting color. Can’t sew a buttonhole? Don’t worry. The button is ornamental; a snap keeps the ring closed.

This is a great way to put scraps of seersucker to use.

Steps
