ways to hem napkins with precision?
Does anyone have a tried & true method of edge-hemming napkins? I am making dozens of large square napkins as presents, and am wondering if there is a tool or process that can help me double fold the edges in 1/2 inch folds (to total 1″). Right now I press it at 1″, and then fold that edge under again and press, but the linen looks wobbly at the edge. Since I am making them rather large at 22″, the lines are not consistently straight unless I mark the fabric every few inches, which is very time consuming. I have a sewing gauge that I have used for clothing hemming, but I would love to know if anyone has a quicker yet accurate alternative process. How are they so straight in store-bought versions?? Thanks very much for any ideas! -Kate
