    Linen Napkins

    I hope this is correct link to post photo of two sets of napkins I made for my sister. SulaBug asked me to post photo when finish . I ordered the soften linen on line from California and the tutorial is from sewtakeahike.typepad.com
    Easy to follow instructions Mine finished at approx. 14-3/4 inch square.

    Those are gorgeous - they can go all the way from an elegant dinner to a casual breakfast depending on the place settings. I love 'em!

    those turned out just lovely! I love linen napkins, and was noticing at dinner tonight some of mine are starting to look a little....drab, dingy, worn...time to make some new ones. yours are sure inspirational. I love the crisp summer colors.
    hiding away in my stash where i'm warm, safe and happy

    Life may not be the party we hoped for, but while we are here we might as well dance.

    Lynnie, the center is a 12" linen square and the mitered boards are add on. The original post has the tutorial site. Really a nice tutorial if you would like to make some. Thank you for asking. They were really quite fun to make.
