Little Craft with a Purpose

How about sewing some little napkins to jazz up lunch?  (Or breakfast. Or dinner.)

1.  Cut some squares, making length and width 1/2 inch bigger to accommodate folding over & finishing the edges.
2.  Fold & press 1/4 inch on each side with an iron.
3.  Repeat -- so that the raw edge of the fabric is no longer showing. (You've just folded it over twice - no biggie.)
4.  Zip around the perimeter of the napkin with your sewing machine to sew in place the finishing job you just did with the iron.  Use a reverse stitch at the beginning and the end, so that it will hold up to lots of washing.
