    Default moda bake shop????

    Hi Everyone!

    I'm wondering if someone could help me out. I'm trying to make something I saw on the moda bakeshop but for whatever reason, I just don't understand the directions. I've read it a million times and I don't really get it. :? I don't want to try to do it until I know what I'm doing because I wouldn't want to mess up my beautiful fabric. I must be having a mental block, because it can't be THAT difficult.

    I basically need help understanding how to do the napkin binding. (Can you tell I'm new at this? ops: )

    Thanks!

    Thanks Shell!

    I've watched the tutorial a few times, but there's a few different steps involved with the napkin. She opens the binding up and folds it over twice and does something different in the corners. I want to make them just as nice as the ones on the moda bakeshop.

    Rosie: I looked at that tutorial on MBS and I agree, it is confusing. Here's another on making napkins that is clear, you might want to try. A different technique but looks to be easy and understandable,

    Rosie- If you still want to try the binding method for your napkins you should take a look at this tutorial http://quilting.about.com/od/binding...ed_binding.htm Like you I found the instructions on how to do this confusing but this tutorial and some trial and error on test fabric helped me. Good luck!
