I've been posting various projects from a party styling photo shoot I participated in with a visiting friend who is a party blogger. The theme was Bigfoot's Cryptid Cocktail Hour and I made these cocktail napkins to coordinate with it all.



I was able to use stash from a bit more than half of the materials, so that was GREAT! I figured we'd have plenty of opportunities to use these in real life, so I went ahead and took the extra time to do the mitered hem. I just love it so much.



There are more photos and some details about how to do the mitered hem on my blog: http://suddenlytaxidermy.blogspot.com/2015/08/bigfoots-cryptid-cocktail-napkins.html
You can see pics from the party shoot on my friend's blog, Fizzy Party: http://www.fizzyparty.com/2015/07/big-foot-cocktail-party.html

Thanks youse guys!

Cute fabric and love the mitered corner instructions - thanks!

These are my second set of napkins using that mitered hem and I think I might be addicted.  Undecided  Next time I want to figure out the quick and not-bulky way to make them so there's a right-side on the "back", too.   Shocked
