Materials for One Napkin:

  • 1--12" square of fabric

Assemble the Napkin:

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

5. The folded side edges should match perfectly to make a mitered corner for a clean and less bulky finish. Pin the corners in place.

6. Stitch around napkin an 1/8" from outer edge to complete napkin. We used a contrasting thread, but you could choose a matching thread for invisible stitches.
