Throwing a Dinner Party? Whip up These 5-Minute DIY Linen Napkins

Easiest Napkins_3
Today I’m going to show you an incredibly easy tutorial for how to make napkins in just five minutes. I had a dinner party I was throwing with some friends and wanted to make something special for the table, so I came up with these. Ready to get your DIY on?

Supplies:

  • linen fabric in the color of your choosing (Note: you”ll need 1 yard of fabric for every 2 napkins, depending on how many you want to make.)
  • scissors
  • thread to match the fabric
  • iron
  • sewing machine

Instructions:

  • Start out by cutting your pre-washed fabric into 18×18 inch boxes. That is a standard dinner napkin size.

  • Fold the edges over about 1/4 to 1/2 inch and iron down. You can do mitered corners if you’d like.
