DIY Thanksgiving Napkins

Found this fantastic fabric at Jo-Ann’s a few weeks ago.  Love it.  I had completely given up on Jo-Ann’s a few years ago, but I think I’m ready to re-new my relationship with them again.  Some seriously great fabric.

fabric DIY Thanksgiving NapkinsI picked up half a yard of these 3 fabrics.  Not knowing what I would actually use the fabric for.  Yes, this is a serious problem I have.  Lots of beautiful fabric in my sewing room, but very few projects being completed.  I’m sure you understand my problem.

I have so little time to actually sew, but thought I could whip up a few DIY Thanksgiving napkins just in time for Thanksgiving.  And I’m now addicted.  I think I could make these all day long.  They just make me happy.

Unfold the corners.  You can see in the above photo the fold marks and where they intersect.  Now clip the corner where the first lines intersect.
