Poinsettia Flower Pouch

Source: Martha Stewart Living, Volume 145 December 2005


We used a pink linen napkin, but you can use any color or fabric you like.


  • 6-inch square cocktail napkins

  • Needle and thread or sewing machine

  • Scissors

  • Embroidery needle

  • 1/4-inch embroidery thread


  1. Fold napkin in half, right sides facing. Sew along open long edge and one short edge, leaving a 1/4-inch seam allowance.

  2. Clip corner where the seams meet; turn pouch right side out, and press with an iron.

  3. Thread needle with a 12-inch piece of ribbon. Space a row of stitches 1/2 inch apart around the top of the pouch, about an inch from the edge. Pull both ends of ribbon to cinch.
