Brunch Napkin Rings {2-in-1}

Brunch Napkin Rings {2-in-1} ~ How to easily make these 2-in-1 Napkin Rings/Placecards ~~ No need to know ANYTHING about knitting ! #loom #napkinrings #placecards #woolcrafts
I told you I have a new toy to play with ! A small round loom, which to me, is like magic :-)
I haven't knitted or crocheted in decades, yet I managed to make these cute Napkin Rings, using mainly the loom. Of course, I still need loads of practice {and some patterns I already have on Pinterest!}, but I am quite chuffed with the outcome of these.

I call them Brunch Napkin Rings as that is what I intended them to be - bright and cheerful and with the flower it is perfect to use for an outdoors Brunch/Lunch or any kind of Al Fresco meal.
The 2-in-1 is because of the obvious use - a Napkin ring and the second is that it serves as place"cards" or in this case numbers.

Let's see what I did :

1.) I made a flower with the loom {full instructions inside the small round blue loom packet} and then I used the same loom {not going all round, starting one side and returning the other way at the last peg in the loom} and knitted a rectangular piece of about 15cm (6 inches) long
2.) Used wool to stitch the flower to the rectangular piece - front center
3.) I used wool again to stitch together the back  {I have since learnt that if you use the loom all round it will create a "pipe" - okay, that's how we learn}
4.) To make the numbers, I cut tiny pieces of burlap and wrote numbers on them with a permanent marker - this I glued onto the flower's center with my hot glue gun
5.) The finished product !
6 & 7.) This is the small round blue loom which I have used {I was making a flower in these pics}

With A Blast - Loom Fabric Flower

I think this is the prettiest flower I have made thus far using the loom {same method, I just used strips of fabric here instead of wool}
