A few months ago, I bought this Japanese printed cotton at my favorite local independent fabric shop in Ventura. I thought it would be perfect for luncheon napkins.
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.
The napkins turned out pretty cute, I think.
I almost hate to get them dirty… even though that is kind of the point of having napkins, right?
