Summer's Pride Cocktail Napkins

"How sweet I roamed from field to field/ And tasted all the summer's pride." - How Sweet I Roamed, William Blake

 Summer is the perfect time to have parties with cold drinks. And pretty homemade cocktail napkins give a perfect finishing touch.

These cocktail napkins come from the July/August 2010 issue of Victoria Bliss magazine.

Here is a picture of the napkins I made:


You will need:
  • Cotton fabric (about 1 yard makes 1 dozen napkins, with a little left over)
  • Scissors
  • 1/2 inch double-fold bias tape in complementing color
  • Needle and thread (or, if you have a good eye and a deft hand, a sewing machine)
  • Straight pins
Cut fabric into 10-inch squares. Baste or pin bias tape to the edges, sew.

Provide at any event where tasting summer's pride is in occurrence.
