The napkin ring adds a nice touch to a place setting. They're quick and inexpensive to make and they also make a great little hostess gift.
There are just 3 pieces to the pattern, the ring portion, the leaves, and the petals.
The ring portion looks like a dog bone. The rounded pieces at each end are also a part of the flower section.
To put everything together, fold the napkin ring portion in half. Pinch together the rounded ends and slide the leaf portion over the pinched portion.
Then slide the petal piece over the pinched portion.
When you have a pretty holiday table, you need a pretty holiday outfit. I could wear the jacket at other times during the year, but it just seems a little more special to save it for the holidays.
This jacket is made from a wool double knit.
The entire jacket is embroidered in crewel work. The yarn is wool.
The buttons are glass, a little heavy, but I love the way they look and I also like how they lay agaist the wool.
A view of the sleeve.
The jacket is not lined. I rather like that you can see that it was actually done by hand.
