Slap Bracelet Napkin Rings Tutorial

With the current Potholder Pass #9, we are exchanging little house potholders and coasters.  I have been wanting to make some Slap Bracelet Napkin Rings to go along with my exchanges, so here they are.  These are so quick and easy to make, you could change out your table in just minutes!  

MATERIALS:  Fabric strip 4" x 11.5"
                        Slap Bracelet  (Oriental Trading Company just put 
                                               slap bracelet in the search)
                        Thread, scissors, sewing machine

1.  Fold down one of the short ends of your fabric strip 1/2 inch and press.

2.  Fold your fabric in half, right sides together, long edges together.

3.  Stitch 1/4 to 1/3" depending on the width of your slap bracelet...along the raw edges, leaving the folded end open.
 4.  Turn your tube right sides out and use the blunt end of a bamboo skewer to gently push out the corners, press and you are ready to insert your slap bracelet.

5.  Insert your slap bracelet into your fabric sleeve and stitch shut across the end to close.

That's it, you are all done!  You can dress your table in minutes to suit your fancy!  And they will store flat in your drawer, just slap them around your napkin for instant decoration!
