• Tape mea­sure • Sew­ing pins

Here’s how

STEP 1 Trim sel­vages. At 1 edge, mea­sure 45cm from edge and mark with a pin. Snip into fab­ric at this mark. Re­peat twice more across the fab­ric. STEP 2 Use both hands to rip the fab­ric into 3 sep­a­rate lengths. Re­peat Steps 1 and 2 us­ing a long strip to make 2 nap­kins, each 45cm square. Re­peat, us­ing the re­main­ing 2 long strips. STEP 3 Care­fully fray all edges, by about 5-10mm. To pre­vent fur­ther fray­ing, stay stitch around each nap­kin, about 3mm in from frayed edges.
