INSTRUCTIONS:Begin by measuring and cutting your fabric. I went with a 5 inch square including the fringe. The pulled fringe is 5/16 from each edge. This fabric makes it very easy to obtain the fringe look. I would recommend that you go slow and take your time by pulling each strand individually and one side at a time. Then download the design above. You will want to decide the size of your text then measure your cocktail napkin to ensure you will be satisfied with the results. Once you have opened your file you will want to resize your text to fit. One of the most important things to keep in mind when cutting heat transfer projects is that your design needs to be mirrored before cutting. Prep your Silhouette file to send to print and load your white heat transfer vinyl onto your Silhouette cutting mat. Make sure you place the shiny side down onto your mat. This will put the adhesive side or back side of your heat transfer up. Once your files have been cut unload your design and weed it. Place your cut design onto your fringe cocktail napkin and make sure your happy with the placement. You will want to grab a piece of material to place on top of your design before you begin to press down on your iron. I made sure to heat up the iron before hand. Make sure to press firmly down onto your design and apply a lot of pressure to ensure your design does not peel over time. I pressed down firmly a few different times, each time for 45-60 seconds before lifting my iron off the design. Now you will want to wait till its completely cooled. Then you may peel back the clear sheet carefully and slowly to make sure it adhered to your material.
Now grab a friend or loved one and enjoy a morning table for two! I love how you can re create these cocktail napkins in various colors and designs. These would make great gifts as well! What do you think of our new series and who would you share it with?
