How to Sew Cloth Napkins with Mitered Corners- an earth-friendly beginner sewing project!
I recently started using cloth napkins for every meal and I’m hooked! Not only does every meal feel fancier, but cloth napkins are also better for the environment. They’re also super-easy and addictive to make!
Anyone who sews ends up with the inevitable fabric stash bin…you know those pieces of perfectly good fabric that are too small for most projects. These DIY Cloth Napkins are a great way to put a dent in your stash pile. I kept my napkins in the blue family- I was most excited to use that scrap of narwhal fabric I’ve been saving for ages!
These napkins are an ideal project for beginners. They also make great hostess gifts!
