These napkins came out better than I’d expected. I did however mess up the measurements – I’ve a million and one tutorials in my head at the moment and was clearly thinking of another! Still, I didn’t want to waste the material, so the one used to create the tutorial was 12 x 12 inches. I only mention it so the eagle eyed amongst you don’t spot it and point out my error! I used a tree for the applique shape, but any Christmas shape will look just as nice. The fabric requirements are for one napkin, so remember to buy as much fabric as you need to sew up as many napkins as you require.
