I love white napkins. You can bleach them to remove stains. They go beautifully with any table decor and I find them extremely versatile, from formal to casual.
First I folded and measured the sheet. I wanted to have perfect squares of 17 ½ inches.
I then ironed ¼ inch seams on all four sides.
I cut the corners;
So that I could fold them.
It is important to have the right presser foot. I used this one. I can not remember the name of it and every machine has a different version. It basically makes sewing a straight edge easy.
Once the presser foot is attached. I set my machine to take the needle all the way to the right (my right).
Now that my machine is set; I fold the seam of the napkin (that makes two folds for a clean edge).
I place the edge under the presser foot and stitch. I repeat with all four sides. Press and fold my napkin.
Yes, as usual, my photo is blurry. I am preparing my letter to Santa tonight for my new camera wish.
The napkins turned out beautifully. I made ten of them. They are of a great quality for a formal dinner table and after Thanksgiving, I threw them in the wash with a bit of bleach. Perfectly white again!
I really wanted to impress my guests with an interesting napkin display. I looked online for directions on how to fold different designs. There were some instructions for folding a turkey napkin. I found it really hard to understand.
Do you have any ideas on how to fold an impressive dinner napkin for my next party?
