Christmas Corner September 2015

Festive Place Mats and Napkins
           Welcome to Christmas Corner, a place to share holiday projects on the 25th of each month.
My original plan for Christmas Corner went awry, when I forgot something I needed to complete the project.
But luckily a new plan was hatched!

Holiday napkins and place mats!
I was out shopping in Boise today with my cousin and saw this cute napkin pattern for only $2.50, by Karen Montgomery.  Can you see it looks like a Christmas tree?

I chose some coordinating fabrics with silver metallic accents for a little extra sparkle.

 Both the napkins and place mats reversible.  Since these are quick to make, you could sew several sets for gifts.  The place mats finish at 12 x 18" so cut them out at 12 1/2 x 18 1/2", sew right sides together leaving a 3" opening for turning.  Then press and top stitch.  I would recommend prewashing the fabrics.  I want to add some silver ribbon, but not sure where?
Thanks for stopping by!   Linking up with Crazy Mom Quilts.

How nice! I just love that napkin pattern, I've been thinking I need to make some as well, and heaven knows I have enough Christmas fabric to choose from!

These napkin and placemat sets are gorgeous! I love the silver and blue fabric you used. And how cute are the "tree" napkins!!
These would make perfect gifts.
