Here is a quick look at how I made my JMU inspired napkins.

Folding two yards of purple cotton fabric in half and then in half again, I cut two 16″x16″ squares.

Leaving me with 8 napkins.

Instead of cutting along the bias, I folded my trim fabric the same as above and cut 2″ strips until I had 512 inches of strips.

I pulled the 2″ strips through my 1″ bias tape maker, pressing to hold the shape. I then folded the bias tap in half to create tons of double fold bias tape for the trim.

I cut four 16″ strips for each napkin, two of which had the ends folded under.

I pinned the bias tape in place as trim around the napkins and sewed in place.

I love them!
