What you need
- Wundaweb or other hemming tape
- Pom pom trim
- Small scissors
- Fabric glue
- Iron (steam iron if possible)
How to do it
1. Have your equipment ready and your iron on.
2. Lay out your fabric square reverse side facing up. Open up the Wundaweb packet and cut four strips that measure the same side as each fabric (50cm).
3. Take one side of the fabric, fold over the edge so that one strip of Wunderweb fits in the gap. Iron on top. The fabric will now have a neat edge folded over and stuck down. Repeat this on the opposite side.
4. For the remaining two sides do the same but you’ll also need to cut a couple of small pieces of Wunderweb for the corners where the vertical ends meet the horizontal ones. Iron over all the sides so everything is stuck down.
5. Cut two pieces of red pompom trim that measure the same size as your fabric and stick them down with fabric glue at opposite ends to complete your no-sew napkin.
