Dress up your holiday table with these harvest-colored napkins.
If youre new to this, you might want to practice on some test scraps first.
I chose autumnal colors for my leaves, but shades of green would be pretty, too!

Making the Napkins
1. With a rotarty cutter and mat, cut fabric into four 17 x 17-inch pieces.

2. On one side of one napkin, fold over the edge 1/4 inch, press, and fold over 1/2 inch. Press again. Repeat on the other side. Sew down both sides close to the seam. Backstitch at each end.

  This is what your hems should look like at the corners.

3. Repeat on the other two sides.

4. Repeat with the other napkins. Clip all threads.
