11  HOME SWEET HOME / Crafty Housewares: Discussion and Questions / Napkin question. on: August 16, 2010 10:20:26 AM
I was thinking of making some cloth napkins, and while looking online I have found there are two methods of making them.

One uses only one piece of fabric and then does a small double hem around the edges.

The other one is two pieces of fabric that are sewn right sides together, turned, and then top-stitched. From the front, both look almost identical.

For those that make or use napkins, which is your preference and why?

Also I have seen them in many different sizes. Which size do you think is best and why?

Since I haven't sewn in awhile I decided to start easy, with a pillow case. I found some fabric the I think my brother-in-law would love.

I followed the instructions of the video here:

The one thing I don't like is that I ended up cutting off the robots head on the cuff of the pillow.

I love it, but I can see how it would get tangled fast.

That came out really nice. Did you use a patterns or did you draft it yourself?

Turns out I can't sew a straight line to save my life

In Home Ec in high school the teacher had has use paper with straight lines on it, and sew with no thread in the machine. After we had done the straight line to the teachers satisfaction we moved on to paper that had corners or curves or just wavy lines. The nice thing about this is if you hold the paper up to the light you can see how your doing at staying on the lines.

I normally use liquid startch for a size, but looking at the ingredients the first three are water, corn starch, and borax followed by perservitives, fragrance and something for ironing.
Is it possible to make my own size from just the first three ingredients?
