Great tutorial Penny!! Love the linen napkins in the range of colours. The newsprint fabric makes the perfect trim.


Fab........ beautifully mitred corners!


This seems like a great way to use up some stash fabric. Thanks for the great tutorial.


Thank you so much for the tutorial! I ordered some linen from the fabric-store, and got a great deal in their "doggie bag" section. 1/2 yard cuts for less than $3 each. My family will be using linen from now on!!!


These are so great Penny! Thanks for sharing! I really love your fabric choices.


I love it! Thank you so much. I just ordered my linen swatches to pick out some colors. These are fantastic.


Penny...love the napkins...so wonderfully custom and finished with the mitered border print. A set of these would make a great gift! Thanks for the tutorial.


We love cloth napkins in our house and this is a great tutorial. Thanks for sharing!


You are AWESOME. I've wanted to make these since I saw them on Amy's blog. Thank you for the tutorial!


Great tutorial and lovely napkins, girl!


Thanks for the fabulous tutorial. These are so very very happy.


Penny these are the cutest napkins! I am so glad you posted this tutorial with the mitered corners. I am going to try this technique with a wall quilt that I am working on right now.


Thank you very much! I've been wanting to make these for some time and had been thinking about how to do it, as I had not found a tutorial. Now, this is perfect! Can't wait to make them! It is like you are psychic!



Great tutorial and very clear explanations! I loved these when I first saw them and need to make some now!


Fabulous tutorial.

1. A design for printed napkins I actually like. And so obvious once I see it.

2. Where did you find the wonderful dictionary fabric? Must have!


These are beautiful! I love the borders. Thanks so much, I'll be linking.

Thanks! I inspired to create! Can't wait for my linen to arrive.

I was looking around Pinterest for ideas for napkins and placemats... Shhhhuuuzzzam!
My cousin who is hosting our Christmas gathering will be excited to see what I am planning.


Wow.. Awesome napkin tutorial shared here. I like your way to represent it. I will try for this creative tutorial.


Great tutorial. Where did you get the text fabric from . It is fantastic.

Libby Osmond Guy

I LOVE these napkins! So cute. I think I will look for the fabric to make some. Although I am not a sewer but I like to try new things. Thanks for the inspiration!


Really, really cute. And I like the idea of a border to stretch the number of napkins you can make from your main fabric choice. This project is going into the 52 Weeks Project queue!

Judith Ehrlich

Just a super tutorial. Made two sets of 6. Also ordered the linen from company suggested fast delivery :)
Would love to post photos. Thank you so very much.

Pat Essick

Your photos were very helpful in making how to make the mitered corners clear. Cute napkins. Thanks for sharing.
