Bringing Beauty Into Your World
Table linens are a simple sewing project that are well worth the effort. These small pieces of fabric artfully arranged add pop, sizzle, glamour, elegance and just plain fun to an otherwise ho-hum table.
They are quick and easy to make and the choices are as endless as the selections at the fabric store. So have fun and be boldly creative!
Begin by cutting out a large square. Determine the width of the hem and miter the corners to suit. My favorite size is 21″ x 21″. To create the mitered corner remove 3 1/4″.
Turn under 1/4″ all around the perimeter of the square as shown below.
Bring folded edges together at mitered edge and stitch a 1/4″ seam.
Clip threads and trim corner to stitching line to ensure a crisp point.
Press open and complete on each of the four corners.
Turn each corner and carefully press hem into place.
Stitch hem into place. You may wish to decrease stitch length for added strength at the corner seam lines. Once stitched, your napkins is completed.
