liberty cocktail napkins

*A quick note about Thanksgiving closures at the shop: We will be closed Thursday and Friday. We'll open again for our usual weekend hours on Saturday. Have a great holiday!*

Customers in the store often ask what they can make with a Liberty of London fat eighth. One of the many things you can make with them - lovely little cocktail napkins for your Thanksgiving hosts. They come together quickly and feel so luxurious. I used a basic two-sided napkin recipe. 

One fat eighth and a quarter yard of a quilting weight cotton fabric (I used two colors of shot cotton) will make you three roughly 8.5" x 8.5" napkins. Cut three 9" x 9" squares from your fat eighth and from your backing fabric.

Pin together at the corners, and sew almost all the way around the napkin leaving a 2-3" opening along one side.

Trim seam allowance around the corners and flip inside out. Press.

Top stitch around the edge of napkins at 1/8" and you're done! Take your napkins for a test run with an eggnog or hot apple cider.
