Bluesette Picnic Napkin Tutorial - Precut friendly

 What if you have just a couple of 10" squares left over from a project?

Fabrics for this project were provided by Benartex Fabrics as part of their Ambassador program. It is called Bluezette and is designed by Jan Shore

Once you have decided on which 10" squares you are going to use, find either a matching or a coordinating thread for your top stitching.

Press your edges towards the wrong side of the fabric, just a 1/4" inch wide.

Lengthen your stitch length. You don't want it as long as your basting stitch, but longer than your piecing stich. My piecing stitch length is usually set at 2, basting for this machine is 5. I set my stitch length at 4 for top stitching.

Top stitch about 1/8" from the pressed edge.

PS. Taking Pictures of napkins is not as easy as it may sound.

Especially when your photography skills are lacking. Ha!

Oh well, they look good in person. You'll just have to trust me!
