Today I wanted to show you how to make your own napkins! I know there have been many times when I haven’t been able to find just the right color napkin to go with a particular tablescape, so I decided to try making my own and it’s really pretty easy! And, I wanted to show you how I created the bird’s nest napkin fold that was shared in my Spring tablescape. If you missed that post, you can see all the details HERE.
How to Make your Own Fabric Napkins
Cut your fabric into a 22″ square. I like to use a template made from cardboard or mat board and then I trace around it on my pressed fabric. Once your fabric is cut, use your iron to press a 1/2 inch fold on all four sides of your fabric square.
Now, open each second (1 inch) fold.
Bird’s Nest Napkin Fold
Fold your napkin in half on the diagonal.
Roll the folded napkin as shown.
Repeat for the right side and place an egg in the center of your nest.
I hope you will give this a try and let me know how it goes!
