Everyday cloth napkins and caddy sewing tutorial

Hey y’all and thank you for joining me today for our weekly sewing tutorial. I hope that you are well and have all you need during this unusual time in history.

This project is practical and a nice mindless sew that is perfect for decompressing and getting into the “zone”. Because it is “sew” simple this is also a wonderful family sewing project and could be a great way to break up your day now that so many of us have been asked to remain home.

The napkins we are making today are smaller and designed for everyday use. As an added bonus, I am also including the instructions for a coordinating caddy that is designed to hold approximately 20 of these smaller Everyday Napkins when folded in half.

The design was born out of necessity as there is currently a shortage of paper napkins in our area. I have another napkin pattern, for Heirloom Quality napkins, that are perfect for dinner parties and formal gatherings and will link to that video below as well as a basic economical napkin with a hem (which I think is harder to sew than the reversible double layer napkins in these last two tutorials—be sure to let me know if you agree!).

I hope you enjoy the project and will share photos of your napkin collection with us on the Group Facebook Page. I will be hosting a live chat on the same Group Page on Friday, March 27 at 2 p.m. ET if you would like to stop by and check in.

Until we meet again, the creative genius in me will be celebrating the creative genius in you!

Be well and stay safe,
