  2. Fold over one of the edges by 5/8 of an inch and press.

  3. Fold the edge over again another 5/8 of an inch and press, this creates a double folded seam and hides the raw edges.

  4. Continue doing this for the other 3 sides in a clockwise direction.
  5. Once you have finished, turn the napkin over so that the wrong side is facing up.

  6. Sew as close as you can to the inside edge using a straight stitch.

  7. Stop about an inch and a half before you get to the corner, unroll the side fabric and fold the corner in, then fold the edge back over to form a mitre.

  8. Once you have sewn 3 sides, take a 4 inch piece of double folded bias tape and tuck it into the fourth mitred corner to make a loop.

  9. Continue sewing until you reach where you started, back stitch and cut the threads.
  10. Fold the napkin into four, then fold the corner in and roll it halfway. Take the other three corners (leaving the loop exposed) and fold them into the centre, then complete the roll.
  11. You should end up with a rolled napkin and the corner loop sticking up.
  12. Fold the corner with the loop over the top and mark inside the loop centre to position the button.
