Materials Needed

  • cloth napkins
  • scissors
  • twill tape
  • fabric glue

Step 1

Cut 3/4-inch-wide twill tape (available at fabric stores) into three 20-inch pieces.

Step 2

Place two napkins side by side facedown, so they lie flush next to each other.

Step 3

Coat one piece of tape with fabric glue (despite its name, twill tape isn’t sticky), then lay it over the seam between the napkins.

Step 4

Repeat with the other two pieces of tape to connect four napkins.
