I was walking through my local stitch shop drooling over the beautiful fabric they have scattered throughout the store.
See that little stack with the red & blue lobsters? It called to me. I picked up the sweet little stack and drooled over the variations! The light blue whales in the top left corner was not part of the original group, but since the bride had a whale theme I felt the need to include them.
I then tried to figure out what size to make the napkins since they were pre-cut fat quarters.
Do I go for the large size? Medium? Small?
I finally decided on the small size, each quarter becoming 4 small napkins.
Having a cutting board, ruler and rotary cutter has been amazing. It makes a huge difference in terms of cutting a bunch at time.
I followed these steps to make mitered corners. It became easier and easier to make each one. The burnt fingers was not fun, but using an iron made a HUGE difference.
In the end the napkins worked out perfectly and were so much fun to do. I can’t wait to make more!
