Father’s Day Napkin Fold Tutorial

For my recent Father’s Day table, I wanted to try out a new Napkin Fold book that had the cutest shirt napkin fold. It looked very complicated but turned out to be very simple.

First you fold all corners into the center. 

Next turn the napkin and fold two sides to the center. 


Turn the napkin over and fold over about 1 inch of the top of the napkin. 


This fold now becomes the shirt collar. It won’t stay but trust me… it will work. 

Turn the napkin back over, and fold two flaps out about three quarters of the way from the bottom to the top. 


Press the napkin at each step…. The fold out will make the sleeves. Now the piece de resistance…. Fold the napkin in half towards the collar. Tuck the bottom of the napkin into the collar. The collar holds the napkin together beautifully. 

And how cute does it look on the table.  

I am joining Yvonne for her new party... Tips and Tutorials.
