Tableware Accessories with Grape Vines
This tableware project was created by Natalia from Pennsylvania.
Natalia, thank you again for the awesome photos!
The author has sewn & embroidered lovely linen runner, napkins,
coaster and wine bottle cover with Grape Vines embroidery designs.
All of the items have been trimmed with "golden" ribbon. Scroll down to see close-up photos, and read instructions for this project.
This classic tableware set is very easy to do, and makes a beautiful gift for yourself or anyone else adult.
The embroidery is done on gorgeous Irish linen, using medium weight tearaway stabilizer.
"Antique White" linen looks luxurious because of it's own matching woven pattern, and grapes designs stand out beautifully on it.
To make the runner, napkins and coaster, embroider the designs first. Cut out appropriate pieces of fabric for those items.
Then, cut out duplicate pieces for the back sides, to close all seams (it's not necessary to cover the back side, but nicer, especially if you use expensive materials like this irish linen.
This is considered "quality sewing").
Put back & front sides on one another, face to face (wrong sides outside). Sew them together, leaving a 4 inch opening. Turn to the right side, iron, sew the opening, then trim with golden ribbon all over the edge. Ready!
To sew the bottle decoration, also embroider the design first. No need to cover the seams here - they'll anyway be inside the cover.
Just iron the edges inside, double folded. Trim with the same golden ribbon, and then sew the back seam. Wear on a bottle of wine, and tie with nice wide golden ribbon. Ready!
