Vintage Style Napkins
Fancy making these vintage style napkins? This is a great sewing project for a beginner!
Wash, dry and press your fabric first. I know this is boring but you'll be more disappointed when those napkins shrink in the washing machine!
Cut out four napkins from your fabric, measuring approximately 10" x 10" or bigger depending on your preference.
Hem your edges. Simply fold over 0.5cm of fabric at each side of the square fabric. Press and repeat, so that you've folded over 1cm at each side.
Pin your hems in place and sew around each edge. Alternatively, skip step 3 and 4 and use an overlocker to hem the edges.
Measure out your chosen lace/ribbon/ric-rac along one edge of your napkin. Pin in place and sew along the top, botton and side edges of the lace/ribbon/ric-rac depending on how wide it is.
Press, fold and ta-da! Your vintage style napkins are ready for a scrummy tea party with the girls!
