Here’s how to create No-Sew Fabric Napkins

  • Cut the fabric 1″ larger than the finished size of the napkins. Trim the edges with the pinking blade. (Trim on a rotary cutting mat.)

You may wonder if the fusing will hold through washings. Gail Brown made 20 napkins years ago, using this technique. These napkins are used at least twice a year and they still are fused along the edges. Amazing!
