Embroidered Cocktail Napkins

Add a charming, topical touch to plain white cocktail napkins! 

This is a Valentine’s Day craft that can be used year-round. While I decided to sew the napkins myself, you can just as easily purchase a set of white cocktail napkins and embroider those. For the napkins I cut squares of a cotton-linen blend fabric and with a sewing machine I finished off the hems with a zigzag stitch in light pink thread.

I chose a darker pink embroidery thread for the embroidered motifs, which I decided to place in the bottom corners of each napkin because that way they are not hidden when the napkins are being used!

The festive napkins look perfect alongside the Valentine’s Day cookies I shared in my last post.
