Hosting at your house? Embroider napkins with a thankful message and wow guests. Sew it All contributor Miranda Anderson shares her tips for painting napkins, but the same effect could be created using embroidery. Select a built in font (or purchase a new one just for the occasion) to spell out your thankfulness. Fold the napkins to hold silverware with the message facing up and show off the delightful finished product. Take a tip from Miranda’s book and use metallic thread for a warm finish.
