    Those ones are pretty, thimblebug...I like the little stump better.

    It all depends on which way you fold them which fabric becomes dominant.

    I'm going to make some ornaments.

    T is it True? H is it Helpful? I is it Inspiring? N is it Necessary? K is it Kind?

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

    Thank you so much for the link, will be making some soon.
    Have about 20 of the large ones cut out and have completed 2 so far. I made a cardboard template to cut around using my rotary cutter and a turn table mat. Went quick for me.
    Will use the scraps to make the ornament size.

    I sewed along each fold line because I figured if these were given to someone else and they washed them they would never figure out how to fold them again.... I had to watch the video 10 times to figure it out.
    I think it looks fine and will give the recipient guidelines on how to use them again.

    I also found it was easier to do the top stitching but not sew the line like Donna Jordan did, but to do the folding and then to go back and sew the line that you got with your folding. I could never get mine to fold right on the 5" line that Donna suggested in her video.

    Thanks for the tip, Watson.
    I think instead of napkins I'm going to do ornaments.

    I just watched the video that someone posted and rewatched Donna Jordan's.
    They Youtuber makes it out of circles. Donna Jordan makes it out of semi-circles.

    Can anyone who's made an ornament tell me which way is better?
    I actually like Donna Jordan's a little better. I may try hers on a smaller scale .
    TIA

    Watson thanks for the information about sewing the fold lines. Made a couple (matching fabric)to put with a table runner that I made for a friend.
