Scrap Your Stash: BHLDN Knock Off

I am really excited to be part of Susan's at "Living with Punks" scrap your stash series! Everyone knows a huge part of my sewing is using what you have and saving every piece so this was right up my alley! My actual problem was narrowing down what scrap project I wanted to make! (There are a few I will be doing this summer but they have to wait until I can get specific supplies). With my little sister getting married this summer I have been pouring over wedding sites and of course a personal favorite is Anthropologies BHLDN. I was looking at their table decor and saw THESE fabulous fabric napkin rings:

 Lightening struck and the internet stood still (literally our power went out) and I knew it was PERFECT!! Pretty sure $5 a napkin ring was about $5 to much ha! I grabbed some of my scraps and went to town.
How cute could these be for any family picnic, sunday dinner, classing up a birthday or if you have a TON of scraps a wedding?
So if you would like to learn how to make my BHLDN knock off napkin rings hop on over to Living With Punks or click learn more. And if the thought of rolling paper or fabric napkins makes your tummy turn you can always use them as cut little wrist cuffs ha!!

What you will need:

Small scraps of fabric (I think you could make a whole set out of a fat quarter alone)
Twine, ribbon or twill tape for your loops
Buttons for embellishing
a scrap of medium interfacing
an iron
Roll up your rectangle and wrap around your loop, looping it up and around the button. 
Taddah!! So easy right!!!
I am so excited to make a bunch of these for Evie's birthday! Fabric stores of America HERE I COME!!
Thanks Susan for letting me be a part of such a genius series!!!
