Hey guys! Hope you had a fabulous weekend! Last Fall I finally got around to sewing myself some DIY Linen Dinner Napkins! I LOVE linen fabrics, specifically for dinner napkins. But, to buy them can be a little pricey. While I was at JoAnn’s last September they were having a sale on linen fabrics and so I bought a yard of 3 different colors and decided I could sew some myself!

And, the style of these napkins are a little rough farmhouse, so even if you make a mistake, don’t stress! They mistakes will only add character!

HOW TO SEW EASY LINEN NAPKINS

Before I get into the step by steps, let’s talk about the size of the napkin! Honestly, you can cut them to whatever size you want! Standard linen napkins are 20″x20″ finished. So, you would cut your fabric to 21″x21″. But, I ended making my 16×20, because I wanted to get as many napkins out of my fabric that I could. So, take that into consideration when deciding your size. The instructions below are based upon what I sewed!

Supplies Needed:

Directions:

Wash and dry the linen fabric twice.

Cut the fabric into 17″x21″ pieces and give the each cut napkin a quick press.

Fold down one size of the napkin 1/2″ and press.

Fold it over again and press again.

Use sewing clips or pins to hold down the fold.

Do the same to the parallel side.

Sew along the two folded edges 1/4″ from the inner edge. Make sure to back stitch as you start and finish the line.
