I made these cute cloth napkins using my new serger.
The fabric I used is a cotton/poly blend which means that it's wrinkle resistant. It's not fun to have an adorable set of cloth napkins that are the size of tennis balls when you get them out of the dryer - all wadded up and in need of pressing. I have many kinds like that too but I am trying to remember to only use a poly blend fabric for future napkins. It's just so much easier that way!
First of all, napkins come in all different sizes. Most range in size from 12 inches to 18 inches. I made mine by cutting my squares of fabric 17" x 17"
You need to set up your machine to do a rolled hem.
Here's a great tutorial...
After simply running all 4 edges under the serger, you will have a completed napkin.
I used contrasting colored thread for the edges...
green gingham with turquoise thread
navy gingham with lime thread
turquoise gingham with red thread
pink gingham with lime thread
orange gingham with turquoise thread
yellow gingham with red thread
