We are doing make-and-take craft tables at the Fayre, so I am going to teach people to make Santa Napkins. An old idea, but dead easy [and if you can’t sew, then you can always stick them together with PVA glue] The instruction sheet is below.
You need white fleece, and red napkins [I got these cheaply from IKEA] some Hama beads, pink felt, and some leaves, [mine are foil sequins, you could use green felt holly leaves, or even mini cake decorations]
The pink felt should be cut into a rectangle 3cm x 6cm. Attach the top circle with loose stitches so it can be removed before the napkin is unfolded and put to use. I found I got the best result sewing the red nose flat, but standing the black eyes on end before I sewed them down. If you are doing this with children and using glue not thread, then goggle eyes work well instead.
A pack of half a dozen of these would make a good gift for someone – or you might sell some at your own Christmas Fayres . They’re a good activity to keep the children busy once term ends.
This is a view of the back, showing how the strips fold down at an angle, in order to give the sloping sides to Santa’s beard.
Do have a go at this one – it is surprisingly effective and not difficult to do!
