I swear cloth napkins disappear the same way socks do! I can't believe I'm on my 4th cycle of making cloth napkins already. Each time I make about a dozen or so and add it to the napkin basket. But after a few months that basket gets a little more empty and I find myself sewing up more napkins again.
I'm sticking with the same 1 fabric, no fills napkins but this time I wanted to experiment with my hemming foot....notice a pattern? :P The results? Disaster!! Okay Okay it was that dramatic, but the results sure wasn't pretty:
Aren't those the messiest corners you've even seen?
I do like the convenience of hemming foot. Look how nicely it curls in the edges for a nice even folded edge... Too bad I can't get the corners to behave!
After wasting like half an hour playing around with this foot and wasting 3 napkin fabrics I went back to my handy-reliable way of making them:
Fold, Fold, stitch. Much clean look and - for me - a much easier and fun experience.
Neat corners :). Takes a little more effort but it works for me.
