Sharing this how-to for easy to make napkins. With miter-edged corners and a crochet edge, these napkins are perfect gifts…but you will most likely want to fill your own napkin drawer!
As you know, I am a sucker for nice linens of any sort, but I have a true penchant for table linens. In case you missed the earlier post, this linen love of mine surely is a genetic thing I inherited the gene from my linen-loving, embroidery-embellishing grandma and mom.
Growing up, we ate our meals at a table with napkins sewn by Grandma and laid our head on pillowcases embroidered by Grandma. So it's no surprise that I have a kitchen drawer filled with linen napkins that are used at each meal and another drawer in my dining room console filled with tablecloths and napkins for ‘fancy' meals.
And ever since I discovered how easy it was to make miter-edge napkins and add a crochet edge to just about anything, the making of napkins has been in overdrive. You can see the simple, crochet-edge cocktail napkin here and the petite pom-pom edged Christmas napkin here. With winter heading out the back door and spring striding through the front, I was ready to ‘spring-up' my everyday dinner napkins. These easy to make napkins are just what I needed to bring spring to the dinner table.
And if your napkin drawer is filled (as if that would ever happen), these would make a wonderful gift …with or without the crochet edge.
The napkins are easy to make with a basic sewing knowledge, which is truly all that I have. I am not a seamstress by any stretch of the imagination but give me a straight line to sew in a basic straight stitch and I'm all over it.
And the crochet pattern is very basic as well…it requires knowledge of two stitches, the chain stitch, and the single crochet. I have included video from a previous project giving some visual explanation in addition to my written explanation.

Now that Spring is fully here, I'm glad to have some new napkins to add some zing to my dinner table and these easy to make napkins were a quick project.
