Isn’t ticking such a quintessential farmhouse fabric? It has the perfect blend of casual style, vintage charm, and a neutral color palette. When we decorated our cozy covered porch, ticking fabric was a no-brainer for our swing cushion cover. Then, when it came time to plan spring parties and summer BBQs, I knew that farmhouse cloth napkins — in a ticking print — were an item I wanted to add to our linen collection.

Supplies: Farmhouse Cloth Napkins
Instructions: Farmhouse Cloth Napkins
- First, cut the ticking fabric into 34″x17″ rectangles.
- Next, fold each rectangle in half in order to create 17″x17″ squares.
- Stitch a line of floss thread along 3 sides of each folded square, approximately .5 in from the edge (skip the folded side). If you’d like, you can mark a guideline, but I simply eyeballed it.My stitches are approximately .75″ in length, but again, no need to aim for an exact measurement. There is charm found in the imperfections of vintage decor.
- Once stitched, use the pinking shears to add a jagged edge along the 3 embroidered sides of the cloth napkin.
- Finally, fold or roll the napkins as you’d like. I wrapped our farmhouse cloth napkins in handmade leather napkin rings.
Set a Farmhouse-Style Table
I had to add some casual leather straps as DIY napkin rings (I’ve been on a leather craft kick, lately — see all my leather projects here). Leather napkin rings are a super easy project, find the details in this post.
