These napkins are so quick--each one only takes 10 minutes tops! That means you can easily make a set of four while watching one episode of your fave show on Netflix. Fabrics are from the Kiss the Cook collection by Mary Lake-Thompson Ltd. for Robert Kaufman Fabrics.


Materials for One Napkin:

  • 1--12" square of fabric
  • Sewing gauge or small ruler

Finished napkin: 11" square

Assemble the Napkin:

1. Lay your fabric square with right side down. Align two rulers or seam gauges with the top and side of the square. Fold the corner in 1"; press in place. Repeat for all four corners.

2. Clip approximately 1/2" off each corner.

3. Fold each side of the square in 1/4"; press in place.

4. Fold each side of the square in another 1/4"; press in place.

5. Your corners should match up perfectly in a mitered corner for a clean and less bulky finish. Pin the corners in place.

6. Stitch around the napkin 1/8" from each long edge of the border for a decorative finish. We used a contrasting thread, but you could choose a matching thread for invisible stitches.
