Last Saturday, I finally got around to making those napkins.

After washing, drying, and pressing the fabric, I used my rotary blade to cut squares.

I pressed the edges to make neat hemlines, and then I marked off the corners to miter them.

Right after I took the above photo, I realized that I made a mistake.  I would have to rip out a few stitches so that I could fold the hems under.

Other than that, I didn’t have any more problems.
