I’m not the most active crafter in social media though I use several services to share my work. That’s how my Follow me napkins came about. Follow me!
- 6 store bought white napkins
- Double sided iron on interfacing
- Fabric scraps for the icon background
- White fabric for the logo

Print and cut out all the pattern shapes.
Trace 6 squares using the pattern.
Cut 6 squares.
Cut all icons with care.
Important: All icons need to be traced over double sided iron interfacing from the wrong side. See photo below.
Then iron double sided interfacing on to the white fabric.
Cut logo carefully on the line.
Remove the paper to reveal the adhesive side.
Place logo on the background square making sure placement is in the right angle. And press following manufacturing instructions.
Now using black thread and machine free motion, embroider around the edge of the icon. I went around the edge about 3 times, maybe 4 in some areas.
You could use some fabric stabiliser to top fabric from puckering. My stabiliser of choice is just plain printer paper.
Now applique the square to the napkin.
Pin 3 layers well.
Stitch around the edges 3 times.
Remove the paper.
Pinterest napkin is done!
5 more to go.
In order to save iron on double sided interfacing -it is quite expensive after all- I traced all the other icons on one single line as per picture, pressed on fabric and then cut out the shapes.
Now Twitter’s turn.
Same deal as before. Use some paper as interfacing.
The paper is easy to remove.
Skype’s logo is a bit tricky to cut. Make sure to use a small pair of scissors.
