Nancy Zieman Circle Serger Christmas Tree Napkins



With two coordinating fabric prints and a little serging savvy, you’re on your way to creating functional as well as festive napkins. Give a set as a gift, or make a set for your holiday entertaining. It’s a fun, easy project.

Here’s a preview of the process.

  • Cut 16″ circles for dinner napkins or 10″ circles for dessert napkins. Place wrong sides together. Use the Yardstick Compass to draw accurate circles.

  • Serge edges with a 3-thread narrow overlock stitch.






  • Creatively fold the napkins. Fold top of napkin to back about 1/3 of the way down. Fold one edge 1/3 to front. Fold remaining edge to back.

2. Marsha Nelson, It was hard to decide but I think I like the orange bag and I would make the orange clutch right after that. Thanks.
