Planning a picnic in the park? These lovely utensil rolls made from our White Hemstitched Linen Napkins are a cute way to organize your cutlery. Once the utensils are removed, the roll even doubles as a napkin!
Directions How To Make A Linen Napkin Utensil Roll
Iron the napkin flat.
To create the cutlery pockets, fold the napkin up seven to eight inches up from the bottom. Press with an iron.
From the right hand side of the napkin, mark stitching lines every 2.5 inches along the napkin until you have enough pockets for all the utensils. Use pins to mark the positions of the stitching lines.
Machine stitch the pockets by stitching a straight line from the crease of the napkin up to the hem along the pin/stitching lines. Note: For a decorative look, I like using an overcastting stitch in the same thread color as the ribbon. You can use either white or the same color bobbin thread underneath
Repeat along all stitching lines.
On the left hand side, fold the strip of ribbon in half and stick between the two napkin layers. Pin down before stitching the edges closed.
Finish by machine stitching a straight line along both edges of the napkins.
Roll the napkin and tie the ribbon around the picnic roll.
Congratulations you are now ready for your picnic.

What People Are Saying About Us
When I got married last spring, I had custom handkerchiefs made for all of the attendees at my bridal shower and it was the perfect bridal shower gift! Bumblebee also made my "something blue," a dress label with my new monogram (in blue!) that was sewn into my wedding dress. I am not the type that wanted to wear a garter belt or blue shoes, so this was a great way to incorporate this tradition while remaining true to my personal style. I will refer Bumblebee Linens to all of my friends!
This company not only has great customer service, but they actually care and have great quality products. I purchased a hankie for my big day, which was beyond beautiful and brought me to tears as it was very special to me to have as I walk down the aisle, since I personalized it with a message to my mom and grandmother, who are no longer with us. I would highly recommend this company to anyone as they are extremely professional, answer emails in a timely fashion and ships quickly.
I knew I wanted to do something special for my sister and soon-to-be mother-in-law so I decided to get them a couple embroidered handerkerchiefs as wedding presents. Not only do I highly recommend the quality product from Bumblebee Linens, but I also highly recommend their customer service. Beautiful, heirloom quality handkerchiefs make thoughtful, personal gifts that you will be proud to give and they won’t break the bank.
If you are looking for beautiful heirloom hankies, Bumblebee Linens is just the right place to find them. I've purchased over 150 times from Bumblebee Linens, and I open each package knowing I'm going to find something gorgeous. Their products are high-end, top quality. Their service is exceptional! I continue to be a very satisfied customer since 2011.
