      This is a great project for the beginning sewist which results in something pretty and useful that can be whipped up in less than an hour. Cloth napkins are environmentally friendly and would make great hostess gifts.

      This is a great project for the beginning sewist which results in something pretty and useful that can be whipped up in less than an hour. Cloth napkins are environmentally friendly and would make great hostess gifts, a great addition to your Sunday dinner or the perfect touch to your Summer picnic! Enjoy!    Materials (to make 6 cloth napkins)    12 fat quarters of quilting cotton (a fat quarter is an 18″ x 22″ piece of fabric found in most fabric stores for as little as $1)  rotary cutter and mat or scissors  ruler  chopstick  sewing machine  coordinating thread  iron    Step 1    Cut each fat quarter into a square measuring 18 inches x 18 inches. Choose two fabrics that coordinate well with each other and place the two pieces of fabric right sides together.     Step 2    Sew the squares together along the raw edges using a straight stitch and a 1/4 inch seam allowance, backstitch both at the beginning and at the end of the stitch to secure it. Make sure to leave a 3 inch opening along one side for turning the napkin right side out.     Step 3    Clip each corner to help give the napkin a nice pointed corner once turned right side out. Make sure not to clip the seam you just made!     Step 4    Turn the napkin right side out. Take a chopstick or other pointy-edged object and use it to help push out each corner to a nice point.     Step 5    Press the napkin with an iron, making sure to turn in the opening a 1/4 inch.     Step 6    Topstitch around the napkin by sewing a straight stitch and using an 1/8 inch seam allowance, backstitch at both the beginning and end of the stitch to secure it. Topstitching will give the napkin a nice decorated finish as well as it will also close up the opening used for turning the cloth napkin right side out.    Enjoy your new stack of cloth napkins and feel good about helping our environment by reducing paper products waste!
