I do seriously love to make mitered corner napkins. I especially love to use linen and to feel like I am just tidying up the edges of a beautiful piece of fabric to let its homespun nubbly goodness shine through.
I’ve been working on two sets of cocktail napkins for my Etsy shop, meant to coordinate with some rustic wall signs I have been creating. Once they are measured and ironed and the angles are aligned, it’s so satisfying to flip those corners over.
The first set I jazzed up with a few simple appliqué circles. I have always loved this shade of cobalt. I also hand-stamped quotations along the hemlines. I like how they frame and center the mitering, and that the seam line of the miter almost acts as if it is punctuation.
They are available at Burro Inteligente, my etsy shop, in sets of two.
