These are so fun! I am a noob sewer -- what kind of fabric is best for making napkins?

Well, I don't know about "best" but cotton prints work well. The last few sets I've made are 2 layers, but the single layer sets lasted a long time, too.  The nice thing about cotton prints is that there are SO MANY options and you can find good prices on them, too.  I've have store bought sets that are thicker and/or looser weaves of cotton or linen, but the selection of those kinds of materials is much smaller in any of the fabric stores I've visited.

Something like this is a great beginner project; it's just a couple of squares sewn together, turned, pressed and top-stitched.  So what if they're not perfectly straight, humans are actually not capable of perfectly straight so straight-enough is a great goal.
