NAPKIN SETS

Napkins might be the simplest gift in the world to make for family and friends!

Japanese yukata cotton is hand-dyed, so the pattern on the front is exactly the same as the pattern on the back. What a perfect choice for your special napkin set!

You need just under 1/2 yard for each napkin. 

First measure the width of the yukata cotton. It will be anywhere between 13.75" to 15.5" as the cotton was loomed for making a kimono.

Cut the fabric 1" longer than it is wide. Roll the cut edges under 1/4" twice and press. Stitch down the two rolled edges and you are done. Tada!

You can make sets of matching patterns or mix-and-match.
