Here I will tell you all the tricks i know to make bow tie napkins
How To Make A Bow Tie Napkin
1. Iron the napkin
What works best for me is a crisp white napkin. I like how it looks nice smooth and flat.
However, any napkin can do the trick and you should feel free to work with what you have.
Iron out both the napkin and the other pretty fabric.
2. First fold
For the next step, you will need to fold the napkin by folding the top down and the bottom up.
Ensure the top and bottom ends meet in the middle and iron the napkin again to maintain this fold.
3. Second fold
Now take the opposite ends of the napkin and make them meet in the middle.
Iron the napkin after this fold to also maintain the fold.
4. Flip it
Once you are done with the folding and ironing, flip over the napkin to reveal what looks like a perfect square.
5. Pinch it
Using your index finger and your thumb, pinch the napkin in the middle so that it forms zig-zags evenly.
Even though the zig-zags are even, try and form the biggest dip in the middle.
6. Tie the bow
Take the pretty fabric you had ironed earlier and wrap it around the bow you have made with your fabric.
To secure the bow tie, you can choose to sew the pretty fabric so that you slide out the napkin, use glue or use a pin.
Any method can work so as to ensure the napkins are in a bowtie shape before use.
Once you are done, set the table and enjoy your fancy meal.
Bow tie napkins add a sense of style to your table. You will need a napkin and a pretty fabric to wrap around it.
Iron the napkin and fold it as instructed above, flip it, pinch it, wrap it, and your good to go!
