A couple of weeks ago I shared my dining room update. In the reveal I shared the DIY Reversible Fat Quarter Napkins that I made. These fabric napkins are super simple to make – in fact, it only took about an hour to make all 8! The fat quarters came from Consumer Crafts and were only $1.47 each, so for under $24 I ended up with some fabulous new napkins that perfectly matched my dining room!
Are you interested in making your own? These are a great beginner sewing project, so if you’ve been looking for a place to start, give these a try! Let’s get sewing!

Fat Quarters of your choice – I made 8 napkins, so purchased 16 fat quarters (8 of one fabric, 8 of a matching fabric)
Sewing Machine with Coordinating Thread
Wash, dry and iron the fat quarters prior to beginning.
Cut the fabric into 17″ squares using a rotary cutter, cutting mat and straight edge.
Place the 17″ squares right sides together. Pin in place.
Using a 1/4″ seam allowance, sew all the way around the square, leaving a 3″ hole for turning.
Clip the corners, making sure not to snip the stitching. This will help the corners lay flat once we turn it right side out.
Turn right side out.
Use a bamboo skewer to poke out the corners.
Using an iron, press the seams flat. Make sure to fold in the edges of the opening as you iron.
Top stitch around the entire edge, making sure the turning hole is sewn shut.
That’s all there is to it! Repeat until all napkins are complete.
These DIY Reversible Napkins look great when paired with the wooden chargers I got from Consumer Crafts, no? Those charges originally looked like this:
After two coats of a spray stain and veneer they are the perfect addition to my dining room table! Especially when topped with the new DIY napkins.
