Here's what you'll need:
fabric paint pens
an old white sheet
lots of fun coordinating trim
First, you need to decide what size you what your napkins to be. I believe the normal size is 16" x 16". I made mine 12" x 12". Once you decide what size you want, you then need to decide how many.
Okay. So here's my math for how much fabric I was going to cut out. I wanted 8 napkins that were 12 x 12. That meant I needed to cut 16 12" x 12" squares. However, since I have little one to help me color, I wanted to keep it as one big piece, for easier coloring, so I cut a big piece of sheet approx. 24" x 96" If you have older children, I would suggest cutting all of the squares out, taping them to pieces of cardboard (so the paint doesn't bleed through on anything else) and let them paint away.
My husband even got home in time to get in on some of the coloring action.
Once everyone was done with their masterpieces I let the paint set for a day or two and then threw it in the washer to set the paint for good.
Then it is time to do some cutting (unless, of course, you chose to pre-cut the squares). Make yourself a cutting template the size of you desired napkin and start drawing your napkin squares and cut them out.
Nice work! You're done!
