This was so clear and easy! I'm making napkins galore now! Thank you!

You did a great job of "breaking it down" for mitered corners. I always enjoy your tutorials, Lisa! I drool over every photo!

Thank you! I sew a lot and never thought about making the corners on napkins or
tablecloths like that. I will be using it in the future! :} I just came over from Thistlewood Farms!

I have read your comments over at Thistlewood Farms and I am so glad KariAnne linked us here. I will definitely be following your blog. Great tutorial on the metered corners!

Thanks for the GREAT tutorial. I have been sewing for years and I never knew how to do an easy and perfect mitered corner... this is it!!! Came to you from Thistlewood Farms and will be visiting more often!

thank you so much for this information. Your napkins look terrific.
I will be following your blog - it's great.

And I really did think I knew how to stitch mitered corners! This way is so much better! I am thrilled and happy that you showed me this better way, and very clearly. Thank you! And Thanks to KariAnne for sending me to you!

Great feature!! You explained it so well, after reading this I will only do mitered corners from now on, they look so much neater than any other way.

Thanks for sharing your blog!

OH MY GOSH! I am saying that out loud! This is so freaking awesome. I have wanted to learn how to miter corners but I was so sure it would be complicated and didn't bother looking it up, but when Thistlewood Farm featured you on her latest post I thought "why not it's right here, it won't hurt". I see my future projects being oh so much better! THANK YOU SO MUCH!


I love those napkins so much! I would love to include them over on Thistlekeeping if you are okay with it!

Just let me know!

Thanks for posting this! I've always loved the finished look of mitered corners, but shied away from sewing them because I thought they'd be difficult. You made the process look so easy! I can't wait to try it.

This is very useful...thank you! I would have never figured this out myself! I'm visiting today from The Scoop...thanks again for sharing this and with great directions!

Wow Lisa...this is a fantastic tutorial...gorgeous napkins!

Thank you for this simple tutorial! I think I can do it!
