Thanks for this tutorial! I love how easy the napkins were to make. :)


Thanks so much for sharing this. I´m going to try it!


I just bought fabric for a new set of napkins and I was slightly dreading all of the pinning and such. I'm a very novice sewer. I am so excited to make my next set now!! Thank you for a great method and tutorial!


Brilliant...I love this trick and I'm going to try this. Cloth napkins have been on my "to-do" list for a while!! Thanks for sharing!


Thank you for the very helpful tutorial. I am so glad that googled Napkin Tutorials to before I started my napkin project.

I like your blog. This is the first time that I have read your blog.


That technique for the corners is seriously brilliant! I just used it and couldn't believe how easy it was and how well it worked. Thank you so much!


Love these! Can't wait to make a stack for my house. I can't open the file for the tags, is there another way to access it? I would love to make some as gifts. THANKS!


What an awesome tutorial! I just wanted to thank you for your time, effort & inspiration. I have some lovely new napkins... WhooHoo!!



I'm trying to make these napkins, but I think I'm doing something wrong. I have folded over all the edges and corners and I'm ready to sew. But if I just sew around the square, there is some left unsewn at each corner. Am I supposed to miter the corners? I'd appreciate your help.


Great instructions. I love setting a table using cloth napkins when we entertain and have been doing this for years. The idea of making my own makes my color palate endless. Can't wait to start. Thanks...


Thanks Jacquie! Hope you get to make some soon :)


Thanks great idea and what a wonderful hostess gift.


Thanks for posting. I made a set of 8 after dinner one night and plan on making a few more for give-a-ways! It's a great way to use funky fabrics!

I've been giving 2 cloth napkins as wedding gifts for the last few years. And I have a stash of about a dozen that I use.

I love this tutorial! Thank you for sharing.


thanks Jen-


I would love to make some in all your beautiful fabrics!!! That would really make the table look nice. Today is Annes b-day. I am doing a penguin party for just the cousins. It is so obnoxious! I love it :)

Wow these look awesome! i will definitely have to have a go. Thanks for the tutorial.


Thanks for this wonderful tutorial. I'm saving this idea for this year's CHristmas gifts. Hope you won't mind me pinning it to Pinterest for reference. Many thanks again!


Wow! that is so clever! Thanks for sharing.


I might give these a try. I just wrote down that we need more cloth napkins around here. I'd like to do some in fun fabric. I'll let you know how it goes if I do it.


I will definitely use this tip. How handy for great corners. Thanks!


Thanks for the awesome tutorial! I can see myself making tons of these as gifts (and for me!). I'm really excited to try them.

Love this! Now, do you have any thoughts on material. Do you just use a quilter cotton, polyester blend? Does it matter? I've had this on my to do list for 3 months and now I'm going to try it!

those are adorable and I love the way you did the corners!!! The little tag is so cute too! I know what I'm making for christmas next year (and every hostess gift in between!)!!
