Sewing the Napkins and Table Runner
Make the napkins and the runner exactly the same way. Begin by mitring the corners of a napkin. Lay your square of fabric down and fold both opposite sides in by 1.5cm and press with a hot iron.
Do this again to make a double fold and press. Do the same on the two remaining raw sides and press.
Open the corners out and trim across. I have coloured my ironed creases with water soluble marker so that you can see what is going on. The line to be trimmed off is shown in purple marker. Repeat this for all corners.
Fold the corner over so that the lines match up and that the trimmed part is right at the point where the two corners meet.
Now fold the mitre in along the original folds and use pins or clips to keep it there.
Sew around the edge of the napkin right on the pivoting in each corner (lift the presser foot but keep your needle down in the fabric). Repeat for the other five napkins.
The runner is made in the same way but this time, allow a folded edge of 2cm.
Lay the inked block carefully onto the calico and use the other roller to evenly roll onto the fabric to transfer the motif.
Continue to ink and print reloading the block each time. Add more ink to the tray as needed. You have two images to choose from and you can mix and match or use just the one. They can be arranged differently and reduced or enlarged to suit your project.
Leave your project in a warm dry place where it will not be disturbed. Clean the tools with water and a little detergent if needed.
