SUPPLIES & TOOLS:

  • 1-1/4 yd. loosely woven linen fabric
  • Rotary cutter, ruler and mat
  • Serger
  • 2 spools serger thread
  • 1 spool bulky nylon thread
  • Poster board
  • Basic sewing supplies
  • Fray Check™

DIRECTIONS:

1. Draw 16" square on poster board for a pattern and cut out.
2. Use the poster board pattern on the diagonal to mark and cut out five 16" squares of linen on the bias.
3. Set up serger for three thread rolled hem stitch with normal serger thread in the needle and lower looper and bulky nylon thread in the upper looper. The upper looper thread is the thread that shows the most and the bulky nylon “fluffs out" to provide greater coverage on the hemmed edge.
4. Refer to the Serger machine manual to adjust the machine for a rolled hem. Always make samples to test the stitch and make adjustments before starting the project. Sew the edges as normal but hold back the fabric by pressing down on the fabric in front as it feeds under the foot to stretch the fabric out a bit. Adjust the machine so the differential feed will stretch the fabric as well.
5. Start on one napkin edge and sew the rolled hem continuing to sew about 2" off the end. Clip the thread. Turn to the next edge and repeat the process until all sides are sewn. Do not try to sew around corners; the corners will not turn out as crisp and neat.
6. Apply Fray Check™ to each corner, allow to dry, then clip off the excess thread.

Variation:
Try knit fabric for a more ruffled edge. It is unconventional but feels so soft and makes the most interesting ruffle edge on two ends. To make the knitted ruffle edge napkins cut rib knit into rectangles 14" wide (stretchy side) and 22" long.
Sew the rolled hem along the cross grain (stretchy side) with the differential feed set to ruffle then go back and sew the other two sides (less stretchy) with the differential set at normal.
Testing the settings on scraps of rib knit before starting is essential.
