RACHEL CASTLE’S EMBROIDERED TABLE NAPKIN “If you’re OK with sewing, buy a length of flax linen, cut napkins to size (around 40cm x 40cm feels generous) and hem them quickly on a sewing machine. Or you can use plain bought napkins or tea towels. Next, cut fabric scraps into shapes. Felt is my favourite, and I like to stick to no more than 6-8 key colours. Sew the fabric pieces straight onto the napkin with a needle and thread.
After the big day, you can easily unpick, wash and reuse them.”
