How To: Monogram Napkins

Someone in Domino magazine recently said "monogram all you can. It shows you care." I think that's a little silly. Probably it just shows you are a bit preppy, but I do think monogrammed napkins are special, especially for newlyweds.
Here's how I do mine:
You'll need cloth napkins, a hoop, and embroidery floss. 1 skein will do 8 napkins plus some.

1) Find a font appropriate to the couple. If you don't have one you like, check out the free fonts here. Size as desired with Photoshop. It usually goes Her first initial, Their last initial, His first initial.
2) Trace the letters onto tissue or tracing paper.
3) Pin your tracing paper to the napkin and chain stitch over it.
4) Tear the tracing paper off.

TaDa! That's almost as easy as writing the letters on paper napkins...
