Button making kit for size 45 (1-1/8") craft buttons
GETTING STARTED: Download the PDF for the Cross Stitch Autumn Leaf Napkin Rings Project. We recommend that you mount your fabric in a hoop or stretcher frame for best results in stitching. To stitch all four leaves at once, find the center of the fabric and mark it with a pin.
STITCHING THE DESIGN: Find the center on your chart and count to the nearest leaf to begin stitching at the corresponding point on your fabric. Follow the chart to complete the cross stitch part of the design. Add the back stitch details.
FINISHING: Use the button making kit to finish the leaves into individual buttons. Cut strips of brown felt 1-1/2" wide to the desired length to use as napkin rings. Use contrasting thread to add a decorative running stitch in the center of the length and also to stitch the ends together to form a ring. Sew the buttons in place opposite the seam on each.
