BLANKET-STITCHED LINEN NAPKINS
You will need scissors; embroidery thread; needle; napkins (ours are Morgan & Finch Milano napkins from Bed Bath N’ Table). ONE Cut approx 2m of thread.
TWO Tie a knot at one end and thread the other through the needle. THREE Starting at the corner of a napkin and 1cm from the edge, bring your needle through from the back and pull all the way through. FOUR Bring your needle up over the edge of the napkin, then back through the same hole.
FIVE Before pulling tight, bring needle through the loop and then pull tight. SIX Now bring your needle through the back, 1cm to the right of your first entry point.
SEVEN Pull thread through and before pulling tight, bring the needle through the loop, then pull tight. The stitch leaves a line of thread along the very edge of your napkin. EIGHT Repeat this until you finish. NINE Tie a few knots on your last stitch to hold in place.
TEN Trim excess thread.
Typically, the height of your stitch should be the same as the width.
