I found this fabric at Joann’s in the Red Tag section, and I’m obsessed! Love this floral print 🙂 I decided to make some linen napkins and maybe sell them in the etsy shop later! Unfortunately, they only had enough for 4 napkins. I’ll keep searching for pretty fabric!
For Dinner Napkins: Finished size is 20″ square. Cut fabric squares at 23.”
You’ll be doing a lot of ironing in this project, so make sure you have a good iron with steam!
How to sew linen napkins
- Start by pressing 2 seams: Press a 1/2″ seam around all four edge, then press a 1″ seam from the folded edge
Sorry if my ironing board cover is a little distracting….
- Unfold the second seam and turn in the corners, lining up the pressed seams and press this diagonal seam.
- Now fold the napkin diagonally and sew along that corner seam.
- Trim off the corner to 1/4″ and press open the seam
- Flip the corner right side out to see the perfect mitered corner 🙂
- Press one last time!
- Stitch down the large seam one inch from the edge, or very close to the edge of the large seam.
These napkins make a great housewarming or hostess gift, and they’re perfect for spring! 🙂
I found a few more linen fabrics that would make pretty table linens on Amazon….
- Plaid: I use plaid table linens for holidays, but this pink and orange pattern is great for the warmer seasons!
- Love these classic stripes
- Gingham would also be great for a table runner to give that picnic-y feel
- Honey Honey collection: I just found this out-of-print fabric line on etsy in linen, and it’s so pretty! I’ll be on the hunt for larger quantities
