napkins finished

I was able to finish all the raw edges on the napkins yesterday and am putting on the applique strips.  It is really an easy process.  

Cut the strips the width you wish but make sure you have a seam allowance on each edge and the end.

Figure out where the strip should be appliqued.  I usually put it about two inches from the edge.  I then fold under the seam allowance on each edge and pin.

I stich around the edges, fairly close but not too close.

And there is a napkin.

Napkins have become a standard wedding and house warming gift for me.  As well as for any family members that have not received a set yet!  Takes a bit of fabric that I usually have left over from other projects and flour sack towels.  I am considering making the towels myself soon as well except the fabric is much cheaper this way.
