Is it too soon for another napkin or embroidery tutorial? Maybe… but these monogram napkins are so cute and fun, I had to share!
I bought this 4-pack of napkins from Target for $9.99, then washed and dried them as normal. They need to be washed and dried before embroidery so it doesn’t shrink later and mess up your embroidery!
I wanted each napkin to look the same, so I printed a 2.5-inch W in a cool font on normal paper, then traced onto some leftover water-soluble paper.
I just used a pencil to trace, and then cut around each square, so it would fit in my embroidery hoop.
I wanted a dainty, but visible stitch using a single strand in half… so really 2 strands.
Then I used a chain stitch, which is great for rounded edges. Its a super simple and quick stitch!
Once I made all four napkins, I realized I wasn’t sure why I chose pink…. My tablecloth has pink in it, so it does match, but I’ll probably monogram in grey next time. Especially for gifts.
Just dissolve the stabilizer, and you’re done! This little project was so quick, even for four napkins
Once again, these make a perfect housewarming or wedding gift. I need to start making these in all letters of the alphabet, so I’m ready to visit friends and family!
