There are few things quite so delicious as warm dinner rolls straight out of the oven, right? Steaming hot with butter oozing down the sides…Man, I’m making myself hungry! I thought I would make a super easy pattern to make those vintage bread napkins that your grandmother pulled out for special meals. You know, the ones that had half circles cut out of the sides? The concept to my Fabric Napkin Bread Warmer is exactly the same as hers but with a few modern updates!

Fabric Napkin Bread Warmer
- Fabric (I used the Little House on the Prairie fabrics)
- Fairfield Solarize Liner
- Sewing Machine & Supplies
- “Fabric Napkin Bread Warmer” Free Pattern (grab below!)
Step One. Assemble supplies. I used fabric from the gorgeous new Little House on the Prairie Andover Fabrics Collection. The quality weight of the fabric worked perfectly for this project because it’ll withstand the inevitable multiple washings. Plus the vintage designs were just screaming to be made into something as quaint as a bread warmer!
Step Two. Fold the fabric in half and then in half again (quartered). Place the pattern into the corner and cut.
Step Three. Repeat with both the lining and the Solarize material.
Step Four. Layer the fabric and lining with their right sides facing each other. Place the Solarize on the back of the lining and sew around the edge with a 1/4″ seam allowance. Make sure to leave a small opening to flip right side out.
Step Five. Using that small opening I just mentioned, turn the napkin right side out and press with iron to make nice sharp edges. Sew tightly around the edges, making sure to close up that small opening you used to turn right side out.
