Tutorial by Heather from Life in God’s Country
- For 12-12″ napkins and 2-20″ bread basket napkins:
- 2 1/3 yards fabric (44/45″ wide)
- Thread to match fabric
- Rotary cutter & mat (not required, but very helpful)
Wash your fabric then iron it.
For the breadbasket napkins, cut a strip 22″ wide by the width of the fabric (44/45″). Cut this in half. You should have 2-22″ squares. (Trim to make it square, if necessary.)
For the napkins, cut the remaining fabric into strips 14″ wide by the width of the fabric (44/45″). Then, cut each strip into 3 equal pieces. You should have 12-14″ squares. (Trim to make it square, if necessary.)
To create the hemmed edges:
On each piece of fabric, using a straight stitch, sew a 1/4″ seam on all 4 sides. Trim the corners so when you fold in the sides, you’ll reduce the bulk of fabric.
Fold each piece in quarters and you have a nice gift set of napkins.
