SEATTLE WA Gifts you can make easily, or better yet, with a young helper, brighten the season.
Napkins might be the simplest gift in the world to make for family and friends!
Japanese yukata cotton is hand-dyed, so the pattern on the front is exactly the same as the pattern on the back. What a perfect choice for your special napkin set!
You need just under 1/2 yard for each napkin.
First measure the width of the yukata cotton. It will be anywhere between 13.75" to 15.5" as the cotton was loomed for making a kimono.
Cut the fabric 1" longer than it is wide. Roll the cut edges under 1/4" twice and press. Stitch down the two rolled edges and you are done. Tada!
You can make sets of matching patterns or mix-and-match.
This November, Okan Arts starting offering packs of curated Mini Collections. Each pack includes six half-yards of indigo and white yukata cotton—the perfect amount for a napkin set.
Happy Holidays from Okan Arts!
