Do you always look for a fun craft project? Well, I do. I like to make cute things to use around the house.
Especially when I see some fun print of the fat quarter fabric bundle, my mind was already imagining that I can make something with it.
This DIY napkin uses the mitered corner for the hem and one of the easiest projects you can do from fat quarter fabric.
What You Need To Make Mitered Corner Napkins
A square piece of fat quarter cotton is a perfect material for making cloth napkins if you don’t have linen fabric available. Cotton quilts material has lots of fun prints.
You can also use a lightweight mix of polyester and cotton fabric. The final size of my napkins is 16 inches squares.

How To Sew Napkins With Mitered Corners
Cut the fabric into 18 inches squares. Mark two lines with the first line are 1/2 inch from the edge, and the second line is 1/2 inch from the first line.
Double fold the fabric by the marked lines, the raw edge should be inside the hem, then press it with ironing.
On the first fold, mark 1 inch from each corner then make a 45 deg angle between each of marked line with 1 1/2 inches long. (image no.5)
Fold the fabric by making pointy triangle edge with the right side of the fabric facing each other (image no.6). Straight stitch on the marked line (image no.8).
Clip the pointy edge to reduce bulky corner (image no.9). Turn the corner inside out (it should look like on image no.10). Top stitch the hem (image no.12).
