Every year at the Denman Island Christmas Craft Faire, the local community school raffles a basket of donated gifts. In past years I have made a tea cosy, a pair of knitted socks, and this year I made a set of napkins. There are different instructions on how to make mitered hems. I used this technique, with a 1/4 turn down, and then a 1 inch hem. They look very nice!
