Quick and easy fall napkins, tablecloth and table runner

I am hosting a very small, casual dinner Saturday night.
I prefer cloth napkins; they are super simple and quick to sew.
 I scoured my stash and found this pretty fall fabric.
I like my napkins big, and I had just enough fabric to make 6 - 20 inch napkins.
I cut my squares.
 I measured and folded the hem double the size I wanted my finished hem to be.

Press so you have a crease at that measurement.

 Now, open the first fold and meet the raw edge to that crease.

Fold over again...

...and stitch.

 I find this method easier than trying to fold over a tiny hem first and then folding up a second tiny hem. Pressing the larger hem first and meeting the raw edge to the crease of the first measurement seems to make it easier and more accurate.
How easy was that!


Did you notice my tablecloth and table runner?

The table runner is a piece of burlap with the edges frayed.

My tablecloth is just a couple of yards of fabric with a serged edge.

I love to sew table linens, and have a linen closet to prove it!

Happy Monday, everyone!
