During this past early July visit, I showed her how to use her new sewing machine ( a great buy at Costco, I wish they were in NY). I started by showing her how to make simple, folded edge napkins. Soon I thought, there must be an easier way for a beginner. I decided the double faced napkins might be the thing that could boost her confidence in simple sewing techniques.
Step 1: Select 1 yard of 2 different fabrics. As I said, Christmas in July, I'd rather forget, but since I had these whimsical Peanuts fabric, they'll do for now.
Prewash your fabric. Warm water and dry in a warm temp in the dryer.
Press with an iron.
Step 2: Prewash fabric in warm water and dry on low heat
Step 3: Cut your fabric to your desired dimensions. I like to use 16 x 16 squares. I cut four of each fabric.
Press and place square right sides together and pin. When pinned you will see the dull side of both fabrics.
Here is a site that shows you how to fold the napkins in many different ways.https://www.napkinfoldingguide.com/
Have fun and enjoy!
To do a test, go to Walmart and purchase two fat quarters for each napkin. They can be different colors or the same. Cut two 16 x 16 squares. Follow the above directions. I'm sure you'll be happy with what you create.
Happy celebrating, Donna!
